Red Wine Tasting at Santiam Wine and Bistro

Santiam Wine & Bistro for Spanish Tempranillo

Tempranillo is the grape of Spain’s noblest wines: Ribera del Duero and Rioja. In those areas, Tempranillo produces wines of exceptional balance, palate, and aromatics, including aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs, and leather. Riojas and Ribera wines often, though they’re not especially acidic or tannic, age effortlessly, with great examples capable of lasting decades or more. Tempranillo is finicky in the vineyard, and the Mediterranean climate is well-suited to the grape. There’s Tempranillo in other parts of Spain, and the wine world, but Rioja and Ribera del Duero are no doubt the best places.We will be tasting 6 Reds, wine list to come, Cost is $12.00 for half pour and under $20 for full pour. They have a nice selection of appetizers and a menu of yummy items for purchase. I look forward to seeing you there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
