    With an exceptional location in the "golden mile" of Ribera del Duero, next to the vineyards of Vega Sicilia, Abadía Retuerta, which is now part of the Novartis group, is not included in D.O. Ribera del Duero as it is just outside its limits, in the town of Sardón de Duero. This allows them to use varieties that are not admitted by the Regulatory Council of this denomination, and to produce wines of marked character, expressive, amiable, with their own style, modern and innovative, and with the unmistakable seal of Abadía Retuerta.
