Rioja is a designated wine region in north central Spain that includes the communities of La Rioja, Navarra and the Basque province of Álava. The typical red grape varieties of the region include Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta, Manzuelo and Graciano. More recently an indigenous variety called Maturana Tinta has been authorized to be used in Rioja wines. While there are a few white varieties grown there (Viura, Malvasía and Garnacha Blanca), red grapes comprise more than 90% of the production. This month, we will be exploring the wines of Rioja and enjoying the wonderful traditional Spanish tastes we have all come to love and know as Paella de Carlos™Make sure you join us for this exquisite Spanish wine tasting.
