RIOJA WINE REGION

The principal wine region of Spain, producing predominantly red wines, the Rioja wine region is centred around the regional capital of Logroño in northern Spain. Named after the Rio (river) Oja, the region is divided into 3 areas: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. Promoted from DO to DOCA status in 1991, the permitted grape varieties are Tempranillo, Garnacha, Cariñena, Graciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malvasia and Viura. Tempranillo is the most widely planted variety, although most are now blended, often with Cariñena. Since the 1990s, most white Rioja wines are made almost exclusively from Viura.
