Now is the last chance to get involved in Shop Rioja

​Now is the last chance to get involved in Shop Rioja

With only a few days to go, there’s no time to waste in getting involved in Shop Rioja this October. There are still a number of events available to attend and plenty of new and exciting Rioja wines to taste.

Hide from the miserable weather at one of these events over the next week. Still to come…

This Friday (24th October), Christine Allen from Maisons Marqués et Domaines will be sharing her expert Rioja wine knowledge and pouring some unspeakably good wines at Prohibition Wines in Muswell Hill, London from 5pm – 7.30pm. 

Also this Friday in Norwick, Harper Wells is hosting the ‘Big Friday,’ a free Rioja tasting from 5.30pm - 8.00pm, while up in Pitlochry, Scotland, Robertsons wine merchant is hosting in-store tastings all weekend to celebrate all things Rioja. 

It’s a busy weekend too…

In Ledbury, Herefordshire, Hay Wines Limited is offering customers the opportunity to taste a great selection of best-selling Rioja wines throughout the weekend. Visit the tasting and you could also be in with a chance of winning a case of Rioja wines. Click here for further information.

Francisco Capel-Lopez will be cooking up some amazing food and has created an ‘Homage to Rioja’ this Saturday at the Glass Kitchen Supper Club in association with Prohibition Wines. Tickets are £45 per person and details can be found on the Facebook page. It’s bring your own  so head to  Prohibition Wines for your Rioja wines beforehand to get an extra 10% off the price.

Next week, the finale

Ivan Aquino, Murrieta’s export manager, is hosting a Marques de Murrieta Rioja Wine dinner at Planet of Grapes, Bow Lane, London. Starting from 7pm on Tuesday 28th October, tickets are £80 and can be purchased here.
