Rioja Alta is a subregion of the Rioja wine region. It occupies the westernmost part of our region, and has most of its vineyards located south of the Ebro River. Rioja Alta centers on the historic city of Haro, where you will find several of the most well-known wineries in the entire region. The city also hosts the internationally recognized “battle of wine” festival in June.
Rioja Alta is perhaps the most important of the three subregions of Rioja (the others are Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Baja), both in terms of quality and in the quantity of wine produced. The climate is similar to Rioja Alavesa and the vineyards are higher than in Rioja Baja, assisting in the accumulation of acidity, color and moderate alcohol levels.
* Autonomous region: Basque Country
* Province: Alava
Rioja Alavesa is the smallest of the three sub-regions in Rioja wine region. It’s situated to the north of the Ebro River, straddling the La Rioja region and the Alava province within the autonomous community of the Pais Vasco (Basque Country).
Its name (“Alavesa”) is derived from the host province (“Alava”). Rioja Alavesa is the northernmost of the three sub-regions, bordering Rioja Alta to the southwest and Rioja Baja to the southeast. Rioja Alavesa is similar to Rioja Alta in terms of climate, soil and style, and together they produce the best wines of the wine region. Here ultra-modern wineries sit side by side with stately bodegas and more modest wineries.
