Tradition & Modernity in DOCa Rioja

There is a lot of discussion, and some controversy, about traditional and modern Rioja wines. There are camps of people who avoid oak-aged wines, those who clamor only for the old-school methods of extended oak aging, terroir-obsessed drinkers, those who want to blow the appellation rules apart. 

Let us take 30 minutes to deconstruct the traditional and modern wines, how to tell them apart, find the styles of Rioja that you love, and identify as professionals how to recommend these Rioja styles to friends and customers. 

Presenter: Nina Sventitsky, Certified Rioja Educator, Vice President North American Sommelier Association.

Nina is currently the Western Regional Manager for the Rioja USA Trade Campaign - and is also one of the first of three Certified Rioja Educators. She presents the Rioja Master certification, and developed and teaches the American Wine Specialist® certification for NASA.
