The history of Rioja wine is as rich as its flavour. Nestled in the northern region of Spain, Rioja’s winemaking tradition dates back centuries, with evidence of grape cultivation and wine production tracing back to the Roman Empire. However, it wasn’t until the 19th century that Rioja began to gain international recognition, thanks to advancements in winemaking techniques and the establishment of several renowned bodegas. The region’s unique climate, characterized by hot days and cool nights, contributes to the distinct flavour profile of Rioja wines, known for their boldness and complexity.  Today, Rioja stands as one of the most esteemed wine regions in the world, celebrated for its time-honoured traditions, exceptional craftsmanship, and unparalleled quality.  Take this fun, 5-question quiz to see how much you know about Rioja wines.

I also have written several articles about Rioja wines on mywinepal, which you may want to read.
