And there are wines for all tastes: classic wines, traditional wines but with the clear mark of their author, established brands, wines that help us to know the particularities of each subzone, wines that tell the past and present of an appellation with a long history... In Rioja there are good wines and extraordinary wines, and these are the ones we intend to present to you in this article: the 10 wines that offer the best value for money, under €20. In fact, most of them cost as little as €10 to €15. Safe values indeed!
On what basis do we say they are the best?
First of all, the fact that their excellence is appreciated not only by the great international critics but also by the general public; they are not the whim of a taster or of our shop, but are endorsed by customers with the most diverse palates. They are the best also because they repeat year after year on all the podiums, their quality is constant, they are original wines in each vintage but they show consistency over time. And finally, because they have the guarantee of reference wineries, producers with more or less tradition but all of them widely known names that inspire confidence, whose catalogues contain only quality wines. We are talking about Remelluri, Telmo Rodríguez, Palacios Remondo, López de Heredia, La Rioja Alta, Artuke, Pujanza, Viña Real, Izadi and Abel Mendoza. It's not easy to narrow down the list to just ten, but here are the top ten for all budgets in our opinion.
