Wine Access: The Magic of Rioja

What Makes Rioja, Rioja?

Our trade partners at Wine Access feature an insightful write-up on their blog in the Viti (Culture) category.

They share “Unlike in other regions, bodegas in Rioja carefully age their bottlings until they are perfectly ready to consume—ensuring perfect, well-aged wines land in the glass every time.Consumers, no matter how much or how little they want to spend on a bottle, are sure to find something spectacular from Rioja.”

Rioja has been Spain’s best-known wine region for centuries, and our iconic wine region is a beacon of value and innovation—two themes that emerged when Wine Access Master of Wine Vanessa Conlin, joined by leaders from two iconic Spanish bodegas for an exclusive discussion on what makes the legendary region the modern benchmark for Tempranillo.
