Overview

DO Arribes is a little-known appellation located on the extreme western edge of Spain along its border with Portugal. Here, near the village of Fermoselle, Alvar de Dios has acquired a single, 40–60 year old vineyard of indigenous Juan Garcia and Rufete intermixed with several other local varieties. The soils here are similar to those you find over the border in the Douro – granite, mica and sand.
