Wines from the Rioja region of Spain are characterized by their distinct flavours, aging potential, and traditional winemaking techniques. Although unfortunately Rioja wine is often less well-known compared to wines from the other established regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy. Our specially selected Rioja wines showcase the strong character of the terroir and medium body of the wine. With a personal wine tasting, our sommeliers can give you insight into how oak barrels contribute to the ageing of Rioja wine and impart complex flavours.

What are the four levels of Rioja wine?

Rioja wines come in many different styles, which can be broadly be differentiated based on their ageing duration and price range. These denominations are:

  • Generic – no ageing requirements and typically at the low price end.
  • Crianza – often aged for around 2 years. For red fine wine this can mostly take place in barrels, whereas white and rose fine wines typically spend around 6 months ageing in barrels.
  • Reserva – aged for 3 years in most cases, with some of this time spent ageing in-bottle.
  • Gran Reserva – Usually the highest priced Rioja wines, Gran Reserva wines are often aged for a minimum of 5 years.
  • Gran Añada (exclusively for sparkling Rioja wine) – aged for at least three years on the lees.


What kind of wine is Rioja?

The most commonly produced wine from the region is Rioja red wine made from Tempranillo grapes. This is a large factor in building the wine’s signature flavour profile, imparting notes of red fruit, spice, and earthiness. You can find this taste in our Sierra Cantabria Coleccion Privada Rioja, which is a blend of vinification from two different vineyards. Riojas are versatile, able to be bought as either a pairing wine or bottles for ageing. In the case of the former, they pair well with a wide range of dishes including Spanish tapas, grilled meats, or aged cheeses. On the other hand, many Rioja wines respond well to ageing and so hold appeal for those with wine storage at home. The result is a wine that makes for a flexible corporate wine gift.
