Rioja remains the pre-eminent winemaking region in Spain today with a tradition going back to 300 BCE, distinguishing itself in the production of the tempranillo grape. The influence of French winemakers, who left their diseased vines in the Bordeaux region in the 1850’s to make wine in Spain, helped Rioja wine acquire its early popular style of long aging wine in oak barrels. As a result, Rioja wines are often thought of as the “Spanish Bordeaux," but have a more delicate style similar to Burgundy. Get to know them and enjoy an evening of a world class tasting.
