Ah, Rioja. A favorite region that is often misunderstood.
Rioja is far more diverse than most wine drinkers realize.
There are FIVE grape varieties allowed (in any quantity). There are three soil types. There are three sub-regions. Thanks to new labeling laws that recently went into effect, there are over SIXTEEN different designations that Rioja can fall into … and that’s not counting the new sparkling wines!
Our Understanding Rioja class will demystify everything for you, and give you tools to find greater bang for the buck in your quest for wonderful wines.
The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating. Which of course then makes it much more fun.
No wines are required for the webinar … pop anything you have (even a beer, we won’t tell anyone). We like to live by the motto learn now to shop smarter tomorrow.
We hope you can join us for Understanding Rioja!
