Our main role at the Regulatory Council for the
Designation of Origin (D.O.) Ribera del Duero is to vouch for the
authenticity of the wines of our region by applying our D.O. trust seal
to each bottle. We also guarantee to the consumers that every single
bottle bearing a numbered back label has undergone rigorous checks
before reaching their wine-glasses.
This is the last stage of the quality control operations which we
carry out. These begin with the monitoring of yields to ensure that
the maximum yield permitted in the region – 7,000 Kg of grape
per hectare - is not exceeded. Quality Control then moves to the
wine making process where we ensure that only the authorised grape
varieties are used. The wines then undergo a blind tasting process
before reaching the market with the seal of our D.O.
We also put a considerable effort into the promotion of the wines
of the Ribera del Duero. Finally, we also work with public and private
organisations in research activities aimed at achieving improvements
in the quality of the grapes and wines of the D.O. Ribera del Duero.
