I partnered with Wines of Rioja to bring together a few of my favorite things. Bacon, pasta, and of course, red wine!
For those that don't know, Rioja is a wine region in Spain. The main grape used to make Rioja wines is Tempranillo. It is indigenous to Spain, but most wine experts would agree that Tempranillo finds its finest expression in the Rioja region, much like Pinot Noir in Burgundy.
The wines that I paired with this recipe are Ramon Bilbao (Limited Edition 2012) and Altos Red Rioja Wine, also made in 2012.
