RIOJA WINE TOUR
Discover Tempranillo, the principal grape in Rioja on your Bespoke Wine Tour in Spain.
The main grape used to make Rioja wines is Tempranillo. It is indigenous to Spain, but most experts would agree that Tempranillo finds its finest expression in the Rioja region.
Rioja wines can be elegant and ethereally subtle, or powerful and lush. Across the board, you can expect vibrant red and black fruit accompanied by toasty spice. Rioja can refer both to the region or the wine made there. Located in north-central Spain, along the Ebro River, Rioja is roughly about 300 square kilometers in size. It is a one-hour drive southeast of Bilbao, the capital of the Basque region and home of the Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum. San Sebastían, one of the best food cities in Europe is also about one hour north.
Much like the A.O.C. system of France, D.O.Ca Rioja, as the wine-producing appellation is known, is regulated by a governing body that oversees wine production and obliges winemakers to adhere to some of the strictest quality-control guidelines in the world.
