Tempranillo is a varietal with endless possibilities. In Rioja, this noble grape shows its true soul through versatility in expression. Rioja reds are blended predominantly with the indigenous tempranillo grape from one of the region’s three subzones – Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. The D.O.Ca. of Rioja administers highly sophisticated and stringent quality control in the winemaking process, from viniculture to bottling. More than 200 brands from Rioja are imported to the U.S.

Join us for a taste of Tempranillo at its finest and rediscover the great characteristics of Rioja (it's been four years since we last tasted Rioja): Value in every bottle, variety for every occasion, and excellence in every sip. Rioja is pure genius. We will sample a variety of wines from Rioja including reds, whites and rosados.

An informal and educational food and wine event for everyone interested in expanding their knowledge and love of fine wines. We will cover some basic topics relating to wine appreciation. Taste and compare wines from around the world. This is the perfect place for wine beginners to learn about wine and why it can be a life long, enjoyable experience. Experienced wine lovers can also benefit by using this evening to brush up on their wine knowledge and tasting skills. There is always something to learn about wine.

The Beanery Cafe will serve an assortment of appetizers with the wines. All wines are served in Riedel stemware. No product purchase is required. You do not have to be a member of the Northern Lights Wine Club to attend any wine event at the Beanery Cafe.
