La Rioja is the most well known wine region in Spain and easily produces the most wine. It is famous for its reds, dominated by the Tempranillo grape. At 65,000 hectares of vineyards it is more than 10 times larger than the Okanagan Valley. From a tiny amount of white wines to youthfully vibrant, fruity reds to massive age-worthy beasts this wine region has lots to offer.
We think every wine lover in Alberta needs to experience La Rioja wines.
