haro and la rioja wines
29 January 2016
rioja is worldwide famous thanks to the red wine. set in the foothills of the pyrenees close to the french border, la rioja turns out what most people have in mind when they think of spanish wines. the wine rioja is made from grapes grown not only in the region la rioja, but also in parts of navarre and the basque province álava. rioja is further subdivided into three zones: rioja alta, rioja baja and rioja alavesa. a wine tour in rioja should combine old wineries with modern ones to understand both the rich tradition of the rioja region and the changes that have also taken place.
