Rioja Wine Dinner

with 

Juan Carlos Rodriguez from Grupo Bodegas Olarra

Classic Rioja is one of the great triumphs of age-worthy wine, as much so as the wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, yet it flies under the radar compared to its more well-known European peers. This landlocked, north-eastern Spanish region has been a famous destination for great wines for many hundreds of years but the modern style we know today came about with French influence in the late 1800’s. Spain tends to produce wine made from indigenous grapes and Rioja is no different, using Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Viura (Macabeo). While white and rosé wines are produced, the vibrant, oak-aged reds are the signature style. These wines are medium to full-bodied, with rich tannins and spice, having intense flavors of dark berries, plum, tobacco, and herbs.
