A rare D.O, certainly for South African imports. The Ribera Del Guardiana is remote… 353 Kilometres from Madrid and just 27 K’s from the Portuguese border. This vineyard is situated between two mountains and surrounded by olive groves.
The focus on wine production here is one of ecologically sound practices, with minimal interference including irrigation.
Remoteness, and coming from a rare D.O haven’t stopped Los Balancines gaining international acclaim. The winery is currently the Official Winery of the “Top 50 Restaurants Awards” which is the leading international competition of its kind.
