D.O.Ca. Rioja

Rioja is a privileged region for growing grapes and making top-quality wines, with a unique personality and an exceptional aptitude for ageing. The Rioja wine region is located in northern Spain, on both sides of the River Ebro.
The local terrain perfectly delimits the region and sets it apart from surrounding territories.
From an administrative point of view, however, its 63,593 hectares of vineyards are divided between three provinces on the Upper Ebro – La Rioja (43,885 ha), Alava (12,934 ha) and Navarre (6,774 ha).

Privileged land due to the exceptional natural conditions for the cultivation of the vine. The area of production of the Appellation Ca. Rioja is situated in the north of Spain, on both banks of the River Ebro.

SITUATION

Landforms have contributed to form a natural region, which is perfectly bounded and distinguished from those that surround it,although administratively the 62,000 hectares of vineyard, currently protected by the denomination, are distributed in the territory of the three provinces along the Upper Ebro riverside course.

THE SOIL

The most characteristic Rioja soil type is also highly suitable for quality viticulture, since it has a balanced structure (sands, silts and clays), is slightly alkaline, poor in organic matter and with moderate water availability during the summer.
