Ribeiro is produced around the towns of Ribadavia, Arnoia, Cortegada, Carballeda de Avia, Castrelo de Miño, Cenlle, Beade, Leiro and Punxín, as well as in some districts of Toén, Ourense, Boborás, Carballiño and San Amaro, all of which lie to the east of the province of Ourense. The vineyards that produce this wine extend across the valleys and hillsides that border the Miño, Avia, Arnoia and Barbantiño rivers, covering an area of 2,700 hectares and lying at between 75 and 400 metres above sea level. The wines of the Ribeiro region, both white and red, are young, light and slightly acidic, with an average alcohol content and a combination of fruited and floral aromas. The white wines are made from indigenous grape varieties such as Treixadura and Torrontés , along with varieties such as Godello , Albariño and Loureira . Red Ribeiro wines are produced from Sousón , Caiño , Brancellao , Mencía and Ferrón grape varieties. These are complemented with the addition of Palomino , Albilla and Macabeo grapes in the case of some white wines and Tempranillo and Garnacha in the case of some of the region's reds.
The Malaga Denominación de Origen (D.O) is one of the oldest in Spain, its Governing Board having been formed in 1933. It was joined by the Sierras de Malaga in 2001, when the D.O. became known as the Málaga y Sierras de Málaga . Its wines are produced from grapes grown in five regions of the province of Malaga: Axarquía , Montes de Málaga , Zona Norte , Costa Occidental and Serranía . These include around 55 different towns and villages and the vineyards extend over almost 1,030 hectares. The different wines from the Málaga y Sierras de Málaga D.O. range in colour from yellow to deep red, and they are produced from preferred grape varieties such as Pedro Ximénez , Moscatel de Alejandría , Málaga and Morisco , along with other approved varieties like Lairén , Doradilla and Rome . Following production, they are classified as liqueur wines, naturally sweet wines and still wines. Depending on the amount of time that they are aged, they are given the following names: Málaga Joven (Young Malaga), Málaga Pálido (Pale Malaga), Málaga , Málaga Noble (Fine Malaga), Málaga Añejo (Mature Malaga) and Málaga Trasañejo (Ancient Malaga). While some wines are not aged at all, others can be left for more than five years. Depending on their sugar content they may be sweet, semi-sweet, dry or semi-sec.
