The Ribeiro D.O. is an ancient Galician wine region in Spain located 45 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Portugal. The area’s cold Atlantic climate does not make for easy farming, but it is ideal for producing wines of impressive finesse and mineral purity. Galicia’s top red wines combine the finesse of Burgundy, the savor of Saumur-Champigny and the brooding depth of the northern Rhône—all tied together with an electricity and aromatic profile that is uniquely Spanish.
