20 - Rioja, Spain

Rioja is Spain’s leading wine producing region. In terms of quality it is unmatched. The wine history of Rioja is heavily indebted to their neighbors to the north (France) and it shows in their production style. With the Tempranillo being center stage in their blends, these wines can range from fruity and floral to tannic and bold.

The gang talks about the rumors of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens ticket presale (rumors now proven true.) and how Italy out produced France this year in total wine yield.
