Under the motto 'Rioja. The river of life', the pavilion reflects the key role of the Ebro as a creator of biodiversity and of the region's rich wine-growing, cultural, economic, social, ecological and environmental heritage. The site, with five differentiated thematic areas, has two floors for exhibition spaces, information areas and a meeting room, in which the constant presence of the wine heritage of La Rioja stands out. In the Expo, La Rioja will show the importance of water as a factor of sustainability and also of Rioja wine as a reference point of identity and a differentiating element in relation to other territories in the country. Every weekend, some thirty Rioja wineries will hold wine tastings in the pavilion, and occasionally there will be culinary demonstrations of mousse in shakers.
