Now, wine producers in the Spanish region of Ribera del Duero can make white wine and call it DO Ribera del Duero. So far, this designation has been for red wines only. The whites account for around 3% of the production in the region and have until now been sold as Castilla y Leon IGP. Now that they can be sold as Ribera del Duero, maybe we will see more of them.

The main grape of the white Ribera wines will be albillo mayor, already the most planted white variety in the region. Albillo mayor must be included to at least 75%. It is a grape that apparently is not so easy to work with, but which produces excellent wines.

It can be blended with a variety of other grapes, such as malvaisa, viura, verdejo, albariño, palomino, chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc, treixadura, viognier and a few more.
