Rare 50 year old Rioja wines

Rare 50 year old Rioja wines

On 30th September at Wines from Rioja’s Trade Tasting, an event open to the UK wine trade , seven rare Rioja wines from the 1964 vintage were unveiled and tasted. Sourced from private collections at winery cellars, the 1964 vintage tasting was hotly anticipated as the vintage was widely recognised to be one of Rioja’s greatest – unmatched until the now legendary 2001.

Shown with an educational and informative talk from wine expert Sarah Jane Evans MW, members of the wine trade enjoyed tasting glasses of the seven special wines -

Bodegas Campo Viejo

Bodegas CVNE Vina Real Reserva Especial

Bodegas Franco-Espanolas Royal Reserva

Bodegas Palacio Glorioso Gran Reserva

Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Gran Reserva

Bodegas Riojans Monte Real Gran Reserva

Herederos del Marques de Riscal Cosecha

These exceptional wines are very rare and in short supply, but many wineries have back vintages dating back for many decades – see here for contact details of all Rioja wineries to help you track down your favourite old vintage – check out our vintage guide here for more information.
