Wine Glossary

This glossary includes those technical terms (in English, Spanish, French and German) which, in our experience, are most commonly found in literature on Rioja and Navarra wines. The terms have been taken from TRINOR's extensive multi-language data base of wine terminology.

If you wish to look up words in another language, go to the appropriate language page using the buttons on the top, right-hand corner of this page.

To consult terms in English, click on the individual words to se their definition and translation into other languages:
