How Some Noblemen, a Train and a Louse Helped Rioja Become a Global Superstar

How Some Noblemen, a Train and a Louse Helped Rioja Become a Global Superstar

The earliest record of winemaking in Rioja, Spain, is from the 11th century B.C., when the Phoenicians settled the region. Local populations have made wine almost continuously since then. While Rioja’s geography isn’t conducive to wine exports, the climate is excellent for production. As a result, most of Rioja’s wine was consumed by residents or pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago until the 1800s.

Grapevine pruning in Barolo: pursuing vitality and longevity in Nebbiolo

Grapevine pruning in Barolo: pursuing vitality and longevity in Nebbiolo

Left untamed, the grapevine is an unruly, perennial, deciduous, climbing plant. Using its tendrils, amongst other adaptive features, the vine, a liana, will use nearby trees to climb up and above the canopy established by competing trees and plants. A heliophyte, Vitis has by process of natural selection acquired a number of ingenious adaptations to support its upward struggle for sunlight.

The generation game: Geoffrey Dean on the rise and rise of Luis Cañas

The generation game: Geoffrey Dean on the rise and rise of Luis Cañas

“At Luis Cañas, being green is not a marketing trend – it is our philosophy and the key to success,” says Juan Luis Cañas.

Half a century on from a chance meeting that led the family to bottle their own wine rather than send it to the local co-operative, the story of Luis Cañas, the leading Rioja Alavesa producer, has been nothing but a heart-warming one. The bodega’s remarkable development has been such that it is now one of the most progressive in the region, with the latest release of its top labels at the end of April underlining how good its wines are.


Dit is lekker en betaalbaar.

Justin Keay: ‘Green Spain’ discoveries from Txakoli, Galicia and Bierzo

With first rate masterclasses spread across three months, the new-look Wines From Spain annual tasting has been an unqualified success, writes Justin Keay. Despite the restrictions in it being virtual-only this year, the event did a great job of unlocking just some of what this diverse wine-producing country has to offer. It was the Green Spain masterclass from Sarah Jane Evans MW, however, which really showed a completely unexpected side to Spanish wine. Keay picks his favourites as well as Top 10 wines from the Importers Highlights tasting.

European grapevine moth in the Douro region: voltinism and climatic scenarios

European grapevine moth in the Douro region: voltinism and climatic scenarios

Abstract

The European grapevine moth, Lobesia botrana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) is considered to be the main pest in the vineyards of the Douro Demarcated Region (DDR) due to the economic losses it can cause. Damage is caused by the larvae of this pest feeding on grape clusters, rendering them susceptible to Botrytis cinerea in mid-season and leading to the development of primary and secondary rot at harvest.

Tim Atkin MW: Rioja's power struggle

Imagine being a voter in Liverpool Walton or South Holland and The Deepings. In the first of these constituencies, the Labour Party received 86% of the ballot in the last general election; in the second, the Conservatives got 75%. Under our first-past-the-post system, the results are as predictable as the lunar cycle. Supporting any other party is a waste of graphite.
