It’s Monday, Let’s raise a glass to the beginning of another week. It’s time to unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and let’s begin Exploring the Wine Glass! Today I sit down with Julio Saenz, head winemaker for La Rioja Alta. His original career was as a pharmaceutical chemist. But once he fell in love with wine, it returned to school to obtain his degree in viticulture and oenology. La Rioja Alta was his first winemaking job and he has never regretted it nor did he ever look back.
We discuss La Rioja as a region, what makes it so special and the stories behind four wines in the La Rioja Alta portfolio; Gran Reservas 890 and 904 as well as the Viña Arana, the Gran Reserva 2014.
While you are listening, I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a moment to scroll down and rate and review the podcast.
