Marqués de Riscal D.O. Rueda


At the start of the 70s, Vinos de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal decided to add a white wine to its product range. After two years’ trials, the Rueda region was the one chosen to make it.

Faithful to its pioneering spirit, Marqués de Riscal created a new, young, fresh and fruity white wine in a region more famous for its sherry-style amontillados and olorosos.
Other bodegas followed us, and the appellation of the D.O Rueda was set up in 1983.



Vineyards D.O. Rueda


Vinos de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal has the biggest stock of estate-owned vines in the Denominación de Origen Rueda (230hectares), and is also one of leading wine producers of the zone and one of the biggest in Castilla y León.



Hectares of vineyards:

230 Ha of our own Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc vines.

250 Ha of controlled external vines in the villages of La Seca, Rueda, Serrada and Rodilana.






Grape Varieties:

  • Verdejo: 160 ha. The indigenous grape of the zone, this is a versatile, hardy variety with lots of personality, making it possible to obtain both the “oloroso” or“amontillado” wines and fresh, young white or oaked white wines.


  • Sauvignon Blanc: 70 ha. A variety of French origin, it was introduced into Rueda by Marqués de Riscal in 1974. Fine, with high aromatic intensity and a markedvarietal character.
