Rioja is known for its layered, long-lived reds, but there’s much more to this world-class region. With a diverse range of wines that over-deliver on quality at every price point, Rioja is a go-to region for buyers and sommeliers.

To showcase the exceptional quality and value of Rioja’s wines, SevenFifty Daily and Wines from Rioja invited five top wine professionals from across the country to bring a favorite bottle from the region and pour it blind for their fellow Supertasters panelists. 

Despite coming from different industry perspectives and running different types of beverage programs, Robert Gamble (the head sommelier at Catch in Las Vegas), Oscar Garcia (the buyer for 67 Wine in New York City), A.J. Ojeda-Pons (the director of operations at Temperance Wine Bar in New York City), Cyrus Tolman (the Spanish wine buyer for Houston Wine Merchant in Houston), and Marika Vida (a sommelier, wine writer, brand ambassador, and founder of Vida et Fils Wine Consulting) all turn to Rioja for collectable wines, new discoveries, and bottles for everyday drinking. Rioja has it all.
