Region
  • Rueda is a wine region at the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, located just north-west of the Spanish capital, Madrid.

  • Castilla y Leon, in the northern half of the central Iberian Plateau, is the largest of Spain's 17 administrative regions. It accounts for about one-fifth of the country's total surface area and stretches roughly 220 miles (355km) from the centre of Spain almost all the way to the north coast. Equally wide, it connects its famous neighbor Rioja with the border of Portugal.
