  • About

Ribera del Guadiana is the chosen name for a single denominated zone encompassing about 26,000 ha/64,000 acres of vineyards in Spain’s extremadura region. The do, awarded in 1998, includes such well-known areas as Tierra de Barros. The autonomous Extremadura government is actively encouraging the planting of international varieties and improvements in wine quality but the results have been slow in coming.
