Bela 2021, only Ribera del Duero in Wine Spectator’s Top 100

16 Nov 2023

We are pleased to announce that our wine Bela 2021 has become the only Ribera del Duero red wine to appear among the 100 best wines in the world in 2023 according to the prestigious American magazine Wine Spectator. Only 5 Spanish wines have made it into this international top 100 and, of these, Bela has the privilege of being the only Ribera, rising to 79th place on the exclusive list.

As they do every year, the editors of Wine Spectator publish a ranking after tasting wines from around the world over the previous 12 months and select the Top 100, based on quality, value, availability and the emotions they elicit. This annual list pays tribute to successful wineries, regions and vintages around the world.

In the 2023 blind tastings, the editors of the US magazine Wine Spectator tasted more than 9200 wines, of which 5819 scored ninety points or more. This was the basis for creating this list after analysing four aspects: quality, value for money, availability and, especially, the so-called X factor (the relevance and background story of the wines).

Spain has achieved five of the hundred places and the Ribera del Duero region only one, with Bela 2021.
