This year Wines from Rioja will be hosting its first Trade Tasting in the UK. Taking place on 9th October at OXO2 in the OXO Tower, this tasting is set to become an annual fixture in the wine trade calendar.
Producers from across the Rioja region will be invited to pour their wines at the event, while a set of “focus tables” will showcase themed highlights from the region, as well as wines selected specifically to appeal to different sectors of the trade. Over 150 members of the UK press, buyers, sommeliers, and other trade influencers are expected to attend the tasting of wines from over 40 Rioja wineries.
Ricardo Aguiriano, marketing director at the Consejo Regulador DOCa Rioja commented, “The UK remains of paramount importance to the Rioja region, and our strong UK marketing campaign has undoubtedly helped us develop and grow our market share over the last six years. We are excited to present such a diversity of wines to the UK trade at the Trade Tasting this year.”
