The wines were selected via a blind tasting in early summer by a panel of leading industry experts, chaired by Rioja authorities Tim Atkin MW and Sarah Jane Evans MW.



Each year, hundreds of samples are submitted, with only the top 10 scoring wines from each category making through to the final listing to be presented to trade in the autumn.
