Herederos 1808 Valcavada - Rioja
REGION: Rioja, Spain
Ah Rioja - love it or hate it, this region has truly come to symbolise all of Spanish wine. It’s not a straight-forward region, by any means, with a lot of rubbish being produced there, much like the place from which much of the money originally came to develop Rioja: Bordeaux. The Martinez family have been winemaking in the caves under the lovely village of Laguardia for 200 years. They make Rioja in the old-fashioned way, with plenty a smooth ﬁnish.
