Designation of Origin Rueda contains the most varied and interesting wine typology in Spain.

This area produces two types of young white wines - both very aromatic and produced from the verdejo and sauvignon blanc grape varieties. The young verdejo wines have experienced a rare change, and have gone from being white wines with character on the palate and good ageing qualities to white wines with a full nose, which are very aromatic. Cask-fermented white wines are produced every year in this area, and for the last decade, sparkling wines based on the verdejo grape variety have also been made.

Since the 2000 vintage, the Designación de Origen has also included reds and rosé wines after the incorporation of the vineyards and bodegas of the Asociación de Vinos de la Tierra de Medina del Campo.
