Rioja

Rioja is a variety of red wine produced in the vineyards of La Rioja, Spain. Most Rioja wines are made from the blended fruits of the Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja, and Rioja Alavesa zones, although single-zone wines have become increasingly popular of late. Rioja wines are heir to a tradition that goes as far back as to the ancient Phoenicians. Because the region's climate is isolated and continental, Rioja wines are very consistent in flavor profile.

 

Rioja Alta wines tend to be fairly light on the palate, while Baja wines tend to be deeply colored and very alcoholic, while Alavesa wines have a higher acidity and fuller body. All varieties are delicious. If you ever get the opportunity, the Batalla de Vino (battle of wine) in the town of Haro is well worth participating in!
