ABC's The Bachelorette might get your customers pining for Rioja, Spain, the north central wine region where the reality TV series filmed an episode that will appear on July 24.

Rachel Lindsay, a 32-year-old attorney from Dallas, and a host of potential suitors visit the region, famous for its vineyards and medieval villages. The episode broadcasts 8-10 p.m, ET.

Rioja is a one-hour drive from Bilbao, the capital of the Basque region and home of the Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum, and the foodie capital San Sebasti­an.

Most famous for their wines made with Tempranillo grapes, Rioja's wineries have been producing wine for over 200 years. Rioja has the most acreage under vines of any wine region -- more than 57,000 hectares (approximately 140,850 acres) -- yielding 250 million liters of wine annually.
