Rioja, a breathtaking region of northern Spain, produces some of the best wines. This exceptionally beautiful illustrated volume pays tribute to Riojan winemaking and culture--and it is the only wine book endorsed by the Riojan government. Ana Fabiano has traveled the world representing Riojan wines, and this work is the fruit of 20 years of research. She delved into Castilian books, conducted interviews with local experts, and spoke with generations of winemakers.  The result is a book from the heart that provides a historical overview of the area along with up-to-the-moment information on each valley, including its bodegas, grape varietals, wines, and producers. To enhance enjoyment of these wonderful wines, Fabiano provides a food section with recipes and pairings.

Ana Fabiano resides in New Paltz, New York. She has been affiliated with VibrantRioja.com for years and travels extensively representing Riojan wines. The Wine Region of Rioja is her first book.

"This comprehensive exploration of one of Spain's most prestigious wine regions will satisfy a diverse audience of wine lovers--whether you're curious about Rioja's rich history and geographical nuances, the characteristics of its grape varietals and finest producers, or just how to read Rioja wine labels. Packed with an array of stunning photographs, this coffee-table book makes an excellent holiday gift."--Wine Enthuasiast
