Winemaking is believed to have begun in Rioja during the 11th century BCE by the Phoenicians. The region is named for the Rio Oja tributary of the Ebro River which traverses the Oja Valley in the province of La Rioja. The Romans conquered much of Spain in the early 2nd century and wine historian, Roger Dion, suggests that the Romans took cuttings from Rioja to Bordeaux. The native Rioja grape Balisca may actually be the ancestor of the Cabernet family.

In mid 19th century, when phylloxera ravaged European vineyards, French winemakers came to Rioja with expertise and winemaking methods. By the time phylloxera reached Rioja in 1901, the remedy of grafting American rootstock to European vines was well-known and successfully utilized.

Principal regions of Rioja are Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. Rioja produces red, white and rose wines with a total of 57,000 hectares cultivated. This yields 250 million liters of wine annually, of which 85% is red. The red wine is mostly Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo varieties. Famous producers include Marques de Riscal, Allende, Muga, and Remelluri.
