The Rueda DO is located in 3 provinces of Castilla y León: Valladolid, Segovia and Avila. It occupies more than 72 municipalities, of which the best-known are: Serrada, Rueda and La Seca. In 1980, it was considered a denomination of origin (the first one in Castilla y León), thanks to its native grape, Verdejo, a fundamental strain for its white wines that has allowed it to be recognized internationally.
With over 8,000 hectares of vineyards, the denomination has 52 wineries and 1,400 growers. Due to the gravelly soil and continental climate it is present, production of quality white wine is favoured. Winters in Rueda are long and cold, the weather is windy and very rainy.
The native white grape, Verdejo, is used most often, but also Viura, Sauvignon Blanc and Palomino Fino. For red wines, the varieties cultivated are Tempranillo, Merlot, Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines that distinguish the Rueda's wines have fruity aromas and a colour like straw. The red wines are tasty in the mouth and structured.
