OT: Maturana Tinta Grape Variety

Last week I visited the wineries of Baron de Ley (Denominación Rioja) in Mendavia (Navarra) and learned of the existence of a grape variety that was considered extinct in La Rioja, the Maturana Tinta. You can find additional information HERE and HERE. Unfortunately I could not try it because the small crop was already exhausted at the winery. I hope to try it soon, stay tuned.

  1. José Ignacio – Oh, that’s really interesting that there has been a revival of this kind of grape. I hope you will get the chance to try it soon and let us know what it’s like.
