The Right Reds, Whites and Rosés
During the holidays, Rioja is a great choice for any gathering.

rioja_vineyard_ma_72The wines of Spain’s Rioja are the perfect match for everything from the quiet night on the couch to the office holiday party to a formal family get-together.

It all comes down to the grapes. The reason Rioja’s a genius pick for any occasion is that the wines tend to be a touch lighter on alcohol yet they still offer bold flavors that drink as well on their own as they do with food.

Rioja’s reds are robust, the whites are crisp and the rosés are refreshing. Rioja’s reds, made primarily from the Tempranillo grape, are known to be a great food match whether served with walk-around hors d’oeuvers or a main course. The best part, though, is that the wines of Rioja are some of the most affordable from any country, let alone Spain.
