Wine, etc.: Rioja region offers excellent wines at great prices

The wine world is constantly evolving. Fifty years ago — a blink of the eye for some of us — France was the preeminent producer of world-class wines.

Although most Americans had not tasted a great wine from Bordeaux or Burgundy, there certainly was a vague awareness that these storied regions were the source of great wines. Italy and Germany were minor players,  producing inexpensive plonk, and California was noted for their post-Prohibition jug wines. 

Fast forward to the present day and, while France is still certainly a leading producer of world-class wines, American, Italian, German and Spanish wines are some of the best and more competitive in the world.

The newest region to attain this well-deserved recognition is the Rioja region of Spain. Tempranillo is the dominant red grape of Rioja, although it is frequently blended with garnacha (grenache) and mazuelo (carignan). 

A recent meeting with Eladio Fernandez, export manager of Bodegas Muriel, gave us a chance to taste their Rioja offerings as well as a delightful albarino from Rias Baixas. Bodegas Muriel is a large producer of Rioja with ownership of several wineries producing 1 million cases of wine per year.
