Duquesa de Valladolid
Located in the region of Rueda, which follows the Duero River about 90 miles northwest of Madrid. Duquesa de Valladolid produces wine from the Verdejo varietal, which is a highly aromatic grapes grown throughout this region. The history of this varietal in Spain goes back over 1000 years but lost influence in the early 1900s as the popularity of oxidative wines like sherry took off. After several decades and the ever changing tastes of consumers, Verdejo is on the upswing as it has grown in popularity as an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.
