Rioja Alavesa/Alta/Baja

RIOJA
SUB REGIONS

Rioja, you may like one, you may love them all, or you simply like trying different things. But mostly it’s about understanding that many producers blend the grapes from all three of the different regions. And even though Baja is the least prestigious of the three, there are certainly some very good wines that come from there mainly because of the hotter climate, where you get a little more ripeness in the grapes.

Alavesa is probably the trending sub-region in Rioja, and due to the minerally of the soil you tend to get a wine that has a lot of structure, with good acidity and tannins.

The classic Rioja wines with great finesse, naturally originate from Rioja Alta, which is obviously a good choice for a 3-cellar more intensive tour.

Although all three sub-regions focus very strongly on producing wines in the regional style, other styles of wine are also produced here. The most notable of these, and perhaps the most unexpected, is Spanish “Cava”, or sparkling wine – not something with which Rioja is often associated since aound 95% of Spain's total Cava production is from Catalonia. However, certain parts of the region are officially authorised to produce Spain's iconic Cava as well.
