Regional Information

Rioja is the most famous wine region in Spain. Rioja and wine have a relationship that dates back millenia, since the Romans occupied these lands in the 2nd century BC. The marks of grape growing and winemaking have been part of the landscape, since then. The diversity of terroir is reflected in Rioja wines which ranges from easy-drinking young wines to more rustic, fuller styles which are capable to be cellared for years. It is the winemaking process that distinguishes rioja wines from other Spanish wines. Most top red Rioja wines are matured in oak barrels
