RIOJA



 
Rioja, one of the most reputated wine region in Spain, has earned its reputation by producing high quality wines from indigenous Tempranillo. With its rich winemaking culture, we can easily trace its history back to Roman period. We can also easily find dozens of historic wineries producing Rioja wines for over centuries. The past of Rioja & Bordeaux are closely interwined, since the winemaking techniques, style of the wine are deeply influenced by Bordeaux traditions. Miguel Angel de Gregorio of Finca Allende descibed the historic wineries in Rioja as "a Burgundy-style wine with a Bordeaux history".

The Cantabrian Mountains, which flank Rioja to the north and west, provide shelter from cold, wet influences of the Atlantic Ocean. This is a significant factor in the local climate, which is significantly warmer and drier than that just to the north. The region's soils vary from place to place, with the finest containing high levels of limestone. 

Other than Tempranillo and Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo (Carignan) are also used in red Rioja wines. A few wineries, notably Marqués de Riscal, use small quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon.
