Rioja is located in the north of Spain on the Ebro River and is one of Spain's most famous wine regions. Tempranillo makes up the largest percentage of any grape variety, accounting for 61% of the vineyard area. The most common soil types in the region are:
- White limestone
- red clay
Compared to the rest of Spain, here you will find a rainy climate with balanced warm summers and cool winters, overall continental in character. Most of the grapes are made into red wines.
