La Rioja is one of Spain’s most famous wine regions and divided into three zones: Rioja Alta, Rioja Oriental and Rioja Alavesa. The wines are mostly red, made from berry-scented grapes such as Garnacha and Tempranillo, and the vineyards run along the banks of the Ebro River, which stretches for around 100 kilometers.
