Pop a bottle! It’s time Rioja: What you need to know.


Ah, Rioja. A favorite, and often mis-understood region.

Rioja is far more diverse than most wine drinkers realize. There are five grape varieties allowed (in any quantity). There are three main soils. There are three sub-regions. Thanks to new labeling laws that recently went into effect, there are over 16 different designations that Rioja can fall into … and that’s not counting the new sparkling wines!

Our Rioja Masterclass will demystify everything for you, and give you tools to find greater bang for the buck.

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.

We hope you can join us for the Rioja Masterclass!
