What we covered: Rioja is a region made famous by its blends of Tempranillo and other varieties, aged for long periods in oak.

Advances in viticulture, harvesting and winemaking – as well as climate change – have allowed Rioja’s growers and winemakers to single out the noble grape of Spain and its sister grapes, and make outstanding wines highlighting the terroir of the region.

Join Master of Wine Kryss Speegle in this tasting webinar as she discusses the varieties that grow in Rioja, where they grow and how viticulture knowledge has changed what is possible in one of the world’s top 5 wine regions. We will taste terroir specific Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha and Viura from specific areas. A wine kit is included in this webinar for qualified trade.

We also discussed:
— The new trend and new allowances of grape provenance vs wine style
–Grape and wine character through a wine kit
