WINES FROM RIOJA TRADE TASTING RETURNS

 

The Wines from Rioja annual trade tasting will return on 30th September following the success of last year’s inaugural event which saw 100 Rioja wineries come together under one roof, showcasing over 650 wines to over 600 members of the trade.

Establishing itself as a firm fixture in the wine trade calendar, the 2014 trade tasting will be held at Lindley Hall; a larger venue chosen to accommodate the additional educational elements, including masterclasses and focus areas showcasing themed highlights from the region. Wines from Rioja also hopes to open up the event to more wineries this year to demonstrate the diversity and quality coming out of the region to attendees.

Ricardo Aguiriano, marketing director at the Consejo Regulador DOCa Rioja commented, “The UK continues to be a very important market for us and we were delighted with the success of the first Wines from Rioja trade tasting. The overwhelmingly positive response from Rioja wineries as well as key members of the trade demonstrates the enthusiasm for the Rioja category as a whole and for an annual tasting highlighting just what we have to offer. We’re looking forward to making this year’s even bigger and better!”
