WINES FROM RIOJA HIT THE RED CARPET AT THE GLOBAL GIFT GALA

In Support of Eva Longoria and the Global Gift Foundation

 

Wines from Rioja was the proud sponsor of the 6th Annual Global Gift Gala London on Monday evening, as part of a series of gala events around the world in support of the Global Gift Foundation.  Over 200 guests attended the Global Gift Gala at the Four Seasons Park Lane in London, where Wines from Rioja was the exclusive wine supplier to the event.  Guests were served a selection of top scoring wines from the recent Rioja 10 x 10 Trade Tasting. 

 

 

Wines from Rioja gifted a collector’s case for the live auction - a rare collection of six bottles of Rioja from notable vintages 1951, 1964, 1970, 1973 and 1978. Stakeholder of the Arsenal football club, Farhad Moshiri, donated £50,000 for the collection.  Other items up for auction included The Eva Longoria Telenovela Experience, original Salvador Dali, Picasso drawings and Frederique Constant Watches.  A total of £330,000 was raised for the Foundation.

 

 

Eva Longoria (honorary chair of the awards ceremony) was joined by supporter Victoria Beckham, who presented The Global Gift Humanitarian award to Katie Piper. Guests were entertained with live performances by Ronan Keating and Anastacia. The next gala takes place in Miami on 3 December.
