Rioja’s red vines

Autumn in La Rioja and the cool temperatures turn vine leaves the color of a young red wine. Some of these vineyards belong to the famous Bodegas Muga. Mostly, they are the Tempranillo varietal, which researchers have concluded is roughly 1000 years old, and can be traced to the Ebro Valley in La Rioja and Aragón. The origin of winemaking in the region, however, goes back many centuries before that to Phoenician and Celtiberian cultures. Today, Rioja is Spain’s best-known wine internationally, and most Spanish wine drinkers consider it the best choice when if comes to getting good quality at a reasonable price.
