Drinking and Pairing Ribera del Duero with Food

Ribera del Duero is a winegrowing region located on the Duero River in north-central Spain. It is famous for its full-bodied red wines, and for one winery in particular, the century-old Vega Sicilia, which produces one of Spain's most expensive wines. The main grape variety grown is Tempranillo, where it is known locally as Tinta del Pais, and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Ribera del Duero possesses a deep ruby color and is full-bodied with aromas and flavors of strawberries, fresh tobacco, and leather.

Ribera del Duero is often highly oaked, making it excellent with grilled vegetables and meats. Serve Ribera del Duero with grilled peppers, onions, tomatoes, chicken, or beef.
