Granted Denominación de Origen status in 2007, Arribes covers a narrow strip of Spain’s Castilla y Léon region, skirting the banks of the Duero river. The distinct geology and topography of the area produces red wines classified as Tinto Joven, Crianza, Reserva or Gran Reserva. Along with the local favourite, Juan García, other prominent grapes include Tempranillo, Garnacha and Rufete. White wines produced under the Arribes DO label must comprise at least 60% Malvasía Castellana.
Bodegas Frontio is a small winemaking project in Fermoselle in the Arribes appellation. It is run by Thyge ‘Chus’ Jensen who acquired old vine vineyards with varieties such as Juan García.
