I received great response to the three Northern Rhone selections from last quarter, both to the theme and the wines. Although it was not intentional, this quarter we will be taking a deeper look into Rioja, with three selections from the region that showcase the different styles and grapes used to make the wines. I find that more than any other of the classic wine regions of Europe, it is impossible to define one style or winery as typical of this region. After visiting several estates in September, 2023, I formulated a great set of wines to show the modern and classic sides of this region, with a special twist for the third selection.
