La Rioja (Denomination of Origin) The cultivation area of the Denomination of Origin La Rioja is located in the Ebro valley and is divided into three areas with different climatic and soil composition: Alava Rioja, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. The Rioja Alta occupies the western half of the name, and the eastern half Rioja Baja. The Rioja region is located north of La Rioja Alta, between the Ebro River, which forms its southern border, and the Sierra de Cantabria, sheltered from the north winds. Overall, the Rioja Alta and the Rioja region have a climate with Mediterranean and Atlantic influences, while in the Rioja Baja predominantly Mediterranean climate, warmer and drier. These differences are readily apparent on the landscape and vegetation, although within each zone are given different microclimates depending on factors such as solar orientation or the degree of exposure to wind. Grape varieties: Tempranillo (preferred), Garnacha, Mazuelo (aka Carignan) and Graciano White grape varieties: Viura (preferred) or Macabeo, Malvasia and Garnacha Blanca Rioja has been and is, without doubt, the reference star Spanish wine, mainly red, either in Spain or abroad Regulatory Board of Denominación de Origen Rioja www.Riojawine.com
