We at Bodegas Lambuena know about the importance of the soil in making high quality wines and put a lot of effort in conserving old vines, and with them, the quality features of the Ribera del Duero.

In our more than 70 Ha of vineyards, we have available to us different types of soil at different elevations, from 850 m to 900 m, where the temperatures on winter nights can reach -8 C.

The different kinds of soil are: clayey, calcareous, silty and sandy. Each kind of soil adds different colors, scents, flavors and sensations fo the wines, making them unique.

The wise combination of grapes from different plots of land allow us to achieve the excellence of our wines with the Ribera del Duero character.


Con algunos bancos de arena es un suelo fértil, que está en ladera, alto y soleado.

Aquí la uva es muy completa, presenta altos niveles de antocianos y polifenoles, excelentes atributos para la uva, que produce vinos de acidez moderada y alta graduación.


The limestone plots are in fresher and higher zones, around 850 m in altitude.

The grapes here and slightly smaller but richer and juicier, with high iron content, low PH and very poor at the substrate level. These grapes form a good combination with the less acidic grapes from the clayey and sandy soils. This union makes wines more balanced, following a strategy of little intervention in the must.


Created by river sediments from past ages, these are very rich soils, with a balanced acidity and pH.

In this soil we get our youngest wines, less complex and with shorter aging times. Usually the size of the grapes here is bigger, as these are cooler lands.


This kind of soil tends to be quite poor and the vines tend to grow smaller grapes with a thicker, stronger skin and much higher concentration levels. The bunches are usually loose and small.

In our land plots, this kind of soil has a clayey and calcareous background, which helps to keep moisture. All this gives the wines great complexity, minerality and even certain balsamic and saline notes.
