For the fourth year running, Wines from Rioja brought Spain to London and helped 15,000 visitors discover the joy of matching Rioja wine and tapas at Rioja Tapas Fantasticas. Over 33 wineries from Rioja and 13 of London’s finest tapas restaurants were present at the two day food and wine extravaganza on the Southbank which meant that there was something for everyone - with temperatures soaring on Sunday to over 30C the refreshing whites and roses were particularly popular.
Wine workshops and walks with wine experts Olly Smith and Susy Atkins were sell-outs and Jose Pizarro took time out from his newly opened tapas bar to show the crowd how to cook the perfect tortilla and gambas al ajillo during the live cookery demonstrations (expertly matched with Rioja wine of course!).
Two great days with fabulous food, visitors, expert advice, weather and Rioja - roll on 2012!
