Wine Enthusiast, “There’s a Spanish Wine for Every Drinker” – Michael Schachner

21 Sep 2020 | News

Open a bottle of Rioja and travel (in spirit) to Spain, the nation with more vineyards than any other wine-producing region. From incredible values to world-class, age-worthy wines, Spain’s premier wine region, Rioja, produces wines perfect for any occasion.

Striking a balance between Old World winemaking tradition and more modern approaches, Rioja is known for its wines made from the region’s hallmark grape, Tempranillo.

To learn more about Spain’s rich winemaking history and diverse wines, read Michael Schachner’s Wine Enthusiast article “There’s a Spanish Wine for Every Drinker” here.

“Nowhere in Spain produces wines more classic in style than Rioja, where the Tempranillo grape rules. Old vines abound here in the country’s most highly regarded and best-known wine region, especially in the subzones of Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa.”

“Riojas made in a traditional style usually fall into the established reserva or gran reserva categories, which spell out the minimum number of years that a wine must spend in barrel and bottle before release.”
