Here’s a great post by Ian Abrahams, from the Bristol Wine Blog. As I described some time ago in my post, “Bordeaux, It’s Not a Grape“, Ian highlights one of the major differences between Old World and New World wines; that Old World wines generally carry the name of their region of origin, rather than the grape varietals used. In his post, Ian discusses the Spanish wine, Rioja. I hope you enjoy Ian’s post as much as I did.
Rioja: Grape, Brand or Region?
