Balbas Winery was founded in 1777, the same year that work started on the first underground wine cavern marking over 200 years of tradition and four generations dedicated to the noble art of winemaking in the Ribera del Duero. Balbas Winery along with a small group of others created and developed what today is known as the Denomination of Origin of The Ribera del Duero. Our wines illustrate the powerful and elegant characteristics of our terroir and demonstrate the skills of the great wineries of the region.
