  • Rioja - mastering maturation

    Join us on a journey of Rioja, Spain’s leading Designation of Origin with more than 600 wineries, 14,800 grape growers and the largest number of barrels in the world.


    Rioja is the oldest Designation of Origin in Spain (1925) and the first to earn Calificada status (1991).


    The key to understanding the complexity of Rioja and its wines is in different wine categories that are based on minimum ageing periods, which can vary between 1 and 3 years in barrels and between 6 months and 6 years in the bottle, depending on whether the wine is to be a Crianza, a Reserva or a Gran Reserva.


    We will taste nine wines representing each category to discover how maturation defines each style and determines quality of wines.
