Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero
Climatological characteristics
The specific climatic conditions that characterize the cultivation of the vineyard in the Ribera del Duero, have a great influence throughout the vegetative cycle of the vineyards. They play a key role in plant development and grape ripening. The quality of the wines obtained depends to a large extent on these special conditions.

The climate of the Ribera del Duero is therefore characterized by moderate-low rainfall (400-600 mm as average rainfall per year). Its summers are dry and the winters long and harsh. With marked thermal oscillations throughout the seasons. These specifications frame it within a Mediterranean climate, but with a marked continental character.

Thus the intense cold delays the sprouting of the vine. The abrupt changes of temperature between the summer day and night, cause a perfect balance of the fruit during his ripening. Finally, in autumn, a magnificent quality grape is harvested.
Geological characteristics
The Ribera del Duero is located on the great northern plateau of the Iberian Peninsula, formed by a large ancient plinth razed and, in part, covered by tertiary sediments. The largest volume of these sediments is made up of lenticular layers of silty or clayey sands, and the alternation of layers, both calcareous and marl, and even calcareous concretions, stands out.

The riparian basin has horizontal levels, gently undulating, limited by differential erosion, and converted today to the state of peneplano. The relief of the area oscillates between the interfluvial hills, with elevations of 911 meters, while in the valleys, with a topographic height between 750 and 850 meters.
