Discover Rioja Wines
Rioja is a Spanish wine area where grapes are produced in the autonomous community of La Rioja and Navarre, as well as the Basque province of Lava. Rioja is split into three zones: Alta Rioja, Oriental Rioja, and Alavesa Rioja. Many wines have historically combined grape varieties from all three areas, but single-zone wines are becoming more popular.
Rioja is made from a variety of grapes, with Tempranillo being the most prominent. Garnacha is often used to give fruitiness to the mix; Mazuelo (sometimes called as Cariena) and Graciano may also be used.
Rioja wine, like Cabernet Sauvignon, is renowned for its structure and tannins, but it also has a fruity flavor. This makes it ideal for wine lovers who like Cabernet but also want to taste the strong cherry flavor found in Pinot Noir wines.
Rioja is as age-worthy as Bordeaux and Burgundy wines, although it is less well-known than its more well-known counterparts. This means that a fantastic bottle of age-worthy Rioja can be had for a fraction of the price of a comparable bottle of Bordeaux or Burgundy. Rioja wine, like many other Old World wines, gets its name from the Rioja area where it is produced.
