Event Description

Rioja has a long history of winemaking and is often the 1st region people name when they think of Spanish wine. On this masterclass we will discover that there is more to Rioja than the Tempranillo dominated wines aged for a long time in oak.

We'll introduce you to the whites and rosés of the region. We'll also explore some of the undiscovered grapes of the region such as Maturana Tinta, Tempranillo Blano and Monastel. Alongside a look at modern Rioja winemaking tecniques.

Last, but not least, we will taste through a Crianza, Reserva & Gran Reserva, to once and for all taste the difference oak and bottle ageing makes in this region.

Our tastings include: a minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, and use of professional tastings glasses.
