Wines of Rioja

Located in the north central part of Spain, the Rioja region has an ancient wine-making history, with origins dating back to the Phoenicians. The region has a total of 57,000 hectares cultivated, yielding 250 million liters of wine annually, 85% of which is red. The wines differ greatly, however, depending on what varietals are used to produce the wine, as well as the effect of aging in oak casks.

We9ll explore all facets of the wines from this region as Lisa Carley, a representative of the Spanish Trade Commission and brand ambassador for their "Vibrant Rioja" program, comes to Chicago to present to us.  We9ll try 5-6 wines (maybe more!) as we enjoy light appetizers in the loft home of one of our members. 

Because space is limited, participation will be restricted to 20 people.  Detailed information on the location and contact numbers will be provided before the event to those who register. Hope you can join us!
