About the Region
This region in north-central Spain has become known for its fresh, fruity white wines, made from verdejo, sauvignon blanc, and viura (macabeo) grapes, either separately or in various blends. Several of the key Rioja producers, including Marqués de Riscal and Marqués de Murrieta, make agreeable whites here. There are also some pleasant reds, based on tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and garnacha (grenache).
