Ribera del Duero council approves DO status for white wine

October 09, 2019

Ribera del Duero's ruling council has changed its regulations to allow the region's wineries to make white wines under the main DO for the first time in its history. The change, which was finalised last week, will allow the 315 or so producers across the DO to produce and sell white wines using the DO label on the bottle. Previously, white wine production in Ribera del Duero was limited to one protected geographical indication, Castilla y Leon IGP, and accounted for less than 3% of the region's wine production.
