Ribeiro

DO Ribeiro
The Ribeiro Designation of Origin is located in Galicia, on the northwestern edge of the province of Orense. Between the confluences of the valleys formed by the rivers Miño, Avia and Arnoia. A region 45 km far from the Atlantic Ocean, in a very particular area and of excellent aptitude for the cultivation of the vineyard.
CLIMATE
Climate is the key factor that determines the agronomy, varieties and style of wines. The DO Ribeiro is located in a transitional area of Galicia, of a Mediterranean character softened by the Atlantic influence due to the short distance from the ocean. In fact, this distance should mean a greater Atlantic character of the environment. However, the orography of mountain ranges that limits the denomination by the west and north, exerts an important protective effect. Consequently, a viticulture is generated where the alcoholic maturation is developed parallel to the phenolic maturation, conserving a balanced freshness propitiated by the natural acidity and with a dominion of the tartaric one on the malic one. The slightly continental character, due to the dominant air currents, causes a significant thermal difference between day and night. This favors the slow maturation respecting the aromatic component and natural freshness.

There are three valleys created by its three main rivers: Miño, Avia and Arnoia. A natural environment formed by slopes, terraces and terraces, excellent for the production of quality wines based on viticulture. All this, favored by a very peculiar microclimate, ventilated and with good exposure for the maturation of the autochthonous varieties of the zone. The maritime influence that penetrates the Miño river basin, creates bands of climatic ecotonia on the slopes. In conclusion, we find a greater Atlantic character as it rises to the level, so that it limits the crop to approximately 450 meters in height for the varieties cultivated to the denomination of Origin.
