Located two hours south of Bilbao and nestled between the Sierra de Cantabria and Sierra de la Demanda mountains, the Rioja region is perfectly located for wine production. Undoubtedly one of the most famous wine regions in the world, Rioja is perhaps best known for its complex, age-worthy reds but it also produces a diverse range of other styles including zesty whites, fruity roses and vibrant, easy drinking red wines.
Join Lowri to learn more about Spain's flagship wine region and taste a broad line up of Rioja wines paired with tasty tapas dishes prepared by Rae from The Kitchen Garden.
