Whichever way, the drink is a kick of sunshine. Spanish
Popular Menu Item Rioja Wine Rioja Wine The most prolific Spanish wine served in the UK, Rioja is popular with red wine drinkers, whether amateurs or connoisseurs. Deep and fruity from the Rioja region of Spain, it comes in many varieties, but a good example should be smooth and velvety.
