Rioja

Despite the surge in quality wines from new regions of Spain, Rioja still reigns supreme as the primary Spanish red-wine making region. Rioja has about 150,000 acres of grape plantations and the primary red wine grapes are Tempranillo and Grenache (or Garnacha).
The nice thing is that Rioja wines are very easy to understand and you only need to understand the three levels to sound like an expert :)
