This juicy, bright Rioja is a perfect match for meaty, spicy sausages, hot off the grill.
What You Need To Know
Though growers and winemakers have resided in Rioja for generations, it was only in 1982 that the Mendieta-Osaba family created it’s own brand. Bodegas Riolanc is in Rioja Alavesa, a distinct subregion from Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. For decades, a typical Rioja was blended from grapes from all three regions, but more and more wineries tend to focus on a single place. Not as high as Rioja Alta, Alavesa is still fairly cool, and its limestone soils produce wines of intense character and deliciously bright acidity.
