ARRIBES

Previously known as Arribes del Duero, the name (like Ribera del Duero) refers to the banks of the River Duero, only this is the part of the river that forms the border with Portugal. The vineyards contain high-altitude sites and a mix of soils from limestone to slate. This very young DO has only about 2,500 acres of vines, and many of those vines are not the usual Duero suspects: Juan García, Rufete, Garnacha, and Mencía, besides the ubiquitous Tempranillo. There is talk of the consejo regulador allowing the grapes Brunal, Bastardillo Chico, and Puesta en Cruz for DO wines.
