The Wine Region of Rioja

Rioja, a breathtaking region of northern Spain, produces some of the best wines. Yet quite often, it is overlooked.

Thanks to Ana Fabiano, this will no longer be the case. The Wine Region of Rioja is an exceptionally beautiful illustrated volume that pays tribute to Riojan winemaking and culture.

And it is the only wine book endorsed by the Riojan government.

Fabiano has traveled the world representing Riojan wines, and her book is the outcome of 20 years of research. She dove head first into Castilian books, conducted interviews with local experts and spoke with generations of winemakers.

The fruit of her labor resulted in a book straight from the heart that provides a historical overview of the area along with up-to-the-moment information on each valley, including its bodegas, grape varietals, wines, and producers.

Fabiano even provided a food section with recipes and pairings to further enhance the enjoyment of Riojan wines.

As if Fabiano’s research and writing wasn’t enough, the photography in The Wine Region of Rioja makes any reader want to jump online to book a trip to Rioja.

Sometimes as wine lovers, we can get caught up in the Napa vs. France game. But Fabiano’s The Wine Region of Rioja helps readers to explore a wine culture rich in history that has been eclipsed but not forgotten.
