Rioja Red Wine
Rioja red wine comes from Spain's most renowned wine region, which is separated into three sub-regions: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. Most Rioja's are a blend of a selection of grape varieties from multiple sub-regions, but the Tempranillo grape is the primary grape, with Garnacha included to provide that great body and vibrant red colour.
