Farewell to Shop Rioja

Farewell to Shop Rioja for another year....

With more than 130 independent retailers taking part, this year’s Shop Rioja promotion was bigger and better than ever. Outlets from all across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland got into the spirit of Rioja with everything from window displays to Rioja wine offers, tasting, dinners, in-store sampling, winemaker dinners and much, much more.

Each participating retailer was competing to be with a chance of being named as the large or small Independent Rioja Retailer of the year 2015. This prize gives the two chosen retailers £1000 towards Rioja wine stock as well as the chance to be involved with a series of events supported by Wines from Rioja in 2016. Last year we worked closely with winners Laithwaites (large retailer) and Prohibition Wines (small retailer) on the Tapas Fantasticas Sessions events – as series of Rioja wine and tapas tastings with wine experts Jane Parkinson, Susy Atkins, Joe Wadsack and traditional Spanish restaurant Bar Tozino.

Stay tuned as later this month we will be announcing the 2015 winners - in the meantime, check out some of the highlights below...
