Rioja is a Spanish province located in the northern portion of the Iberian Peninsula. This wine-producing region has more than 500 wineries spread across 54,000 hectares of land. However, the diversity of the Rioja wine region extends beyond its wines. It provides an abundance of religious and cultural diversity.
Rioja is connected to the famous Saint James pilgrim route and is home to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed San Millan Yuso and Suso monasteries. The Rioja wine region is also a fantastic location for nature enthusiasts. Sierra de Cebollera Nature Reserve and Arnedillo Biosphere Reserve are not to be missed for their breathtaking scenery!

This 2016 Exopto Bozeto de Exopto 2021 is a more layered, aromatic example that leaps out of the glass and immediately gets to work. As usual, Bozeto is a predominantly Grenache/Tempranillo blend; the Grenache portion (50%) comes from the sandy, riverstone terroir of El Agudo, a 60-year-old plot at Alfaro on the Monte Yerga (Rioja Baja), while the Tempranillo (40%) comes from the mature Periquita vineyard (in balos) in the Rioja Alta.

Valduero Crianza 1989
The Valduero Crianza begins with a complex aroma of dark fruit, licorice, savory herbs, and cigar box, a term I rarely (if ever) use, but which fits this wine perfectly. Be sure to give this wine a couple of hours to open up before tasting it, as it reveals more flavors of dark fruit, lovely spice, vanilla, and cinnamon. The finish is dry with good length and additional savory fruit.
Telmo Rodriguez ‘Dehesa Gago’ 2020
Red fruits with hints of smoke and meat, as well as an abundance of balsam, briar, and wildflower. In addition, there is a hint of red-dirt energy, and everything is easily expressed, open, and mature.

Nivarius Tempranillo Blanco 2018
Nivarius is freshness and, if we’re discussing wine, fresh fruit and natural acidity, which are essential components of wines with character and longevity. However, it is also a heritage restoration project.
