What we’ve been up to….

2015 has been a very busy year so far with the Wines from Rioja campaign launch and announcement of all the activity planned for the year. We have also been busy attending some key industry events and here are some highlights from our year so far.  

 

Gran Orden de Caballeros Dinner – 24th February, Savoy hotel

On 24th February, we attended the annual Gran Orden de Caballeros Dinner at London’s famous Savoy hotel. The night celebrated all things Spanish and awarded leading influencers in Spanish Food and wine, including Monika Linton, owner of the Brindisa restaurant group. There are now 73 members of the Gran Orden de Caballeros from both Spain and the UK.
