Quick Facts on Rioja Wine Rules. The problem with Rioja Oriental is that a sizable proportion of its production is bulk wine

Quick Facts on Rioja Wine Rules. Rioja can be labeled by its three official zones: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa, and Rioja Oriental (aka Eastern Rioja – originally called Rioja Baja. The Rioja aging classification still uses the same levels of generic, Crianza, Reserva, and Gran Reserva, but there is also Gran Añada, which can be used for sparkling wine. Most wine books will tell you that Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa make the best wines, but that’s not always true. The problem with Rioja Oriental is that a sizable proportion of its production is bulk wine. Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa tend to have more minerality and elegance.

Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Bordeaux Blends are dry, red wines and generally have aromas and flavors of black currant, black cherry plum, graphite, cedar and violet. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs.

Rioja is a wine region in Spain, with denominación de origen calificada (. "Qualified Designation of Origin"). Rioja wine is made from grapes grown in the autonomous communities of La Rioja and Navarre, and the Basque province of Álava. Rioja is further subdivided into three zones: Rioja Alta, Rioja Oriental and Rioja Alavesa. Many wines have traditionally blended fruit from all three regions, though there is a slow growth in single-zone wines.
