Event Description

Rioja has a proud history of winemaking and there is increasing global  awareness of it's smooth red wines.

This tasting will delve deeper into this famous wine region to look at the subzones, villages, key grapes, vintage and producers (new and traditional).  We'll cover the history of Rioja and the recent changes to the wine law and labelling.

The six wines on tasting will include a range from across these styles:

Gran Reserva

You will get the chance to try wines from classic traditional producers like Muga and Marques de Murrieta alongside younger generation winemakers. We will unlock labelling terms Vinos de Municipio and Vinedos Singulares for you and bring you up to date with what is happening in this key Spanish wine region.

Some of the wines will be blends across a sub zone or several sub zones, others will be village or estate wines.,

If opulent, classy red wines based on Tempranillo are your thing then you will not want to miss out on this fantastic wine tasting!


Your tasting will include: tasting samples of six carefully selected wines, light nibbles, full wine notes & handouts, a 2 hour presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor.
