Today I bring you the final installment of our Snooth PVA Writer's Seminar Series round up articles, on the great wines of Rioja. I was joined by Rioja's great spokeswoman, the indomitable Ana Fabiano, for a tasting that featured grand vintages, both young and old, from some of the most venerable bodegas in all of Spain.
Ana led a fabulous event, discussing in detail the wines of Rioja, their regional differences, the vintage traits of the wines we tasted, as well as the culture of the land making for a well-rounded and complete presentation. Of course the wines spoke for themselves; brilliant examples of one of the world's greatest wines. Each writer took something special away from this event, and together their words help to capture the beauty of the tasting and the overall feel of our events. Enjoy each perspective as part of a greater whole, for that is what the world of wine writing is; slivers of insight into something one is rarely able to fully capture.
