Ribeiro is a Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) (Denominación de Orixe in Galician) for wines located in the northwest of the province of Ourense (GaliciaSpain). Ribeiro has a long tradition of producing and exporting wine from the Galician Atlantic ports. It is believed that the first vineyards were planted by the ancient Romans. Nowadays, white Ribeiro wines are known for their fresh, slightly acidic, fruity character.

Vineyards grown on very steep slopes  (known locally as socalcos or bocaribeiras) benefit from deep soils of granitic origin with a significant content of stones and gravel which improve the structure of the soil and reflect sunlight onto the vines. White wine represents about 80% of the wine produced, and is most produced with the Treixadura variety which is native to the area. Other athorzed white varieties are: AlbariñoGodelloTorrontésLoureiraMacabeo and Albillo.

RIBEIRO wines are superbly fresh, vibrant and clean. Largely unknown outside the Spanish market, they represent amazing values and are true gems of a Spanish denomination all to be discovered.
