Rioja wines are named after La Rioja region in Spain. Known mainly for its red wines, Rioja wines are made from Tempranillo grapes grown in La Rioja, as well as areas in Navarre and Alava, a Basque province. All true Rioja wines come with a DOC (Denominación de Origen Calificada) seal. This ensures buyers that the wine not only meets the requirements to be considered Rioja but also guarantees its authenticity and excellence.
