About the Producer
Rioja lies in the North East of Spain, just below the centre of the Pyrenees Mountains of France. Within the region the limestone ridges of Alavesa are considered to produce the finest wines with the most elegance and intensity.
Valserrano is a long-established family winery or Bodega and use grapes from their own vineyards to ensure the best quality fruit is used in their wines. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve fruit freshness and then aged for two years in a mix of French and American oak barrels to give a smooth vanilla element and a touch of toast and mocha chocolate.
Back in fashion again, quality Rioja such as this is just the wine for when the nights are drawing in…

Deep violet with chocolate and vanilla
A classy Rioja Reserva from the Villabuena vineyards in the premium Alavesa region. With 10% Graciano added to the classic Tempranillo grapes, this elegant Spaniard has extra violet and chocolate notes. Aged for two years in American and French oak barrels, the wine then takes another two years minimum in bottle before we can enjoy its sophisticated flavours of dark berry fruits, mocha, soft cinnamon and smooth vanilla influences.

Food and Wine Pairing
Rioja is a very versatile wine for food matching. Steaks and roasted lamb dishes are a fantastic pairing but do try with some simple tapas such as our spicy or sweet Artisan Chorizo or Iberico Pata Negra cured ham with some cheeses.
