La Rioja is one of the most famous wine-producing regions in the world, creating smooth, rich and elegant wines for a great price. Light and easy-drinking, with a bit of texture, these are a great partner for all sorts of food, or just enjoying on their own.
However, there is a great deal more to learn about it! There are sub-regions with completely different styles, different producers who take full advantage of the flexibility of the rules (such as the grape varieties), there are white wines, and there are different quality classifications based on how long the wine is aged in oak. At the highest quality levels, these are some of the finest wines in the world. There's a lot to explore!
1 x White, 4 x Red wine samples.
Over the course of five vastly different wines, we dive deep into this fascinating region. We start with a white Rioja to show how the region's less famous wines can be every bit as good. We then explore two different producers showing the effects of regionality, we also explore the three quality classifications: Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva – all from the same producer.
Cut-off for joining the next tasting is midnight on the 10th of January (to give us time to send it to you).
About The Adventurer Series
Our Adventurer Series is perfect for people who feel they know their way around a wine shop, but want to take the next step and explore the differences a great winemaker can have on a wine, learn about lesser-known grapes and find the hidden value around the world.
You'll probably already know the common grape varieties and have some favourite regions, but this remains a great fun, approachable course. We'll explain what the different terms you'll find on a label are, how to taste like a pro, and learn how to master a restaurant wine list! We'll also teach you about food pairings and why things work so well together (or don't!)
Based at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust's Level 2 point, this is a great way to take your appreciation of wine to the next level, to demystify wine, to build confidence in choosing wines and to discover some incredible new wines that you may never have even considered before.
We'll teach you all about how these wines are made, what makes them special and we'll highlight a few of the things to watch out for in the wine world and you will have a great time too as it's a mix of entertainment and education!
On this advanced level course, we also introduce a winemaking or grape-growing concept every month and talk about it for 5 minutes.
Either join our LIVE and interactive online tasting (around 90 minutes) where you can ask your own questions, or watch the recording at your own pace, whenever and wherever is convenient for you.
