Through this presentation/interview with Ana Gallegos, DipWSET, certified Rioja wine educator, we’ll discover that beyond a strong identity, Rioja today is increasingly varied and innovative, with new techniques, new terroirs, and new styles.
We’ll taste three red wines with different characters and three wines representing the renaissance of Rioja whites.
