Rioja 10x10 highlights

Rioja 10 x 10 tasting 2016 highlights

After a very successful launch last year, Rioja 10 x 10 returned for a second year to Banking Hall on 11th October 2016. Visitors from the trade were the first to taste this year’s top 100 Rioja wines – blind-tasted and selected from over 400 entrants by an expert panel back in August, chaired by Tim Atkin MW and Sarah Jane Evans MW.


It was a great event full of members of the UK wine trade, excited to taste this year’s diverse line-up of Rioja wines. Alongside the official tasting, attendees also took part in a blind tasting competition.


This year’s wines were selected from the following categories:

·         Unoaked whites

·         Oaked whites

·         Rosado

·         Crianza

·         Reservas 2009 and before

·         Reservas 2010 and later

·         Gran Reserva

·         Reds from non-Tempranillo varieties

·         Generic wines over £15

·         Chair’s Choice (wines selected by Tim Atkin MW and Sarah Jane Evans MW)
