Wine & Pincho
Rioja is Spain’s most popular wine region and internationally famous. The province lies in the north of Spain, approximately 120km from west to east and 40km north to south, and just over an hour south of Bilbao. It borders the Basque Country to the north, Navarra to the north east, Aragón to the south east, and Castilla y León to the west and south. It is protected by the Sierra Cantabria mountain range to the north and the Sierra de la Demanda to the south, both of which offer a breath-taking backdrop to this beautiful region.
The Ebro river carves through from its Cantabrian source in the west to its Mediterranean delta in the east and is fed by its seven tributaries. The region is rural with a handful of significant towns and dozens of tiny villages dotting the stunning landscape, and encompasses three zones which from west to east are Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental.
