Rioja in Food & Wine “Drink Your Best Wine Now–Who Knows What Tomorrow Will Bring”
“I’m not planning on emptying out my cellar, but then again, I don’t know how long isolating at home will last. I do know that I’ve got seven more bottles of 1964 Rioja, 12 more Riojas from the 1980s, and a whole lot of 1990s.”
