Rioja

Rioja is the best known wine-producing region in Spain, situated towards the north of the country and producing mostly red and a small amount of white wines. The name 'Rioja' comes from the local river, the 'Rio Oja ', a tributary of the River Ebro. The region can be divided into three distinct sub-regions - namely Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Baja. The region's best wines tend to come from the Limestone-Clay slopes of the Alta and Alavesa, where Tempranillo performs particularly well.Seven grape varieties are permitted in the production of Rioja. Red wines can be made from Tempranillo, Garnacha, Carinena and Graciano, although in practice, most are a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha with Carinena and Graciano playing a much more minor role. The seventh variety is Cabernet Sauvignon, which is allowed by special dispensation in specific vineyards of one individual producer. White wines are made mostly from Viura and Malvasia.

Tempranillo

Tempranillo is Spain's signature red variety and is responsible for more of the country's highest quality red wine production than any other. It has thick skins and as such is capable of making deep coloured, long-lived wines. It has a propensity to ripen early, hence its name derived from the Spanish 'temprano', which means early. Its relatively short growing cycle enables it to thrive in the often harsh Spanish climate, particularly in Rioja, where it is often blended with Garnacha.
