Rioja joins Eva Longoria at Global Gift Gala


Eva Longoria toasts again with Rioja


The actress drank Rioja at the official dinner for the Global Gift Gala in Mexico

The Gala was a ceremony which sought to raise funds to rebuild the various areas of Mexico affected after the September earthquakes


Eva Longoria drank Rioja at the recent Global Gift Gala celebrated on Halloween night at the St.Regis hotel in Mexico. The Gala sought to raise funds to help the areas affected during the earthquakes in September.  

The initiative launched by the actress was to offer a ceremony to host more than 300 personalities in art and culture and come together to help towards rebuilding after the damages caused by the earthquakes. This is the third time that the actress chooses to serve Rioja at an event.

The two main hosts included Eva Longoria and the singer Maluma, who along with the Global Gift Foundation, Eva Longoria Foundation, the Arte de los Sueños de Maluma, and the Duerme Tranquilo Foundation joined efforts to bring hope to the people in the state of Oaxaca who were affected by the earthquakes.

The Regulatory Council of the Denominación de Origina Calificada Rioja wanted to support the actress with whom they maintain a close relationship since awarding Longoria with the Prestigio Rioja in 2016, followed by a visit to the DO in April 2017.

The chefs Óscar Ruiz y Óscar Portal were in charge of designing a special menu where traditional Mexican dishes were paired to white and red wines from Rioja. The Texan actress shares, ‘Rioja is a wine that is very well-known in the United States’ and a wine which Longoria serves at any event or as a gift.

The Regulatory Council of the Denominación de Origina Calificada Rioja created the Premio Prestigio Rioja in 1994 to recognise people or institutions who contribute to upholding the values and traditions of winegrowing communities.

Some of the personalities who have received this award include Ferran Adriá en 2013, Pau Gasol in 2011, Sara Baras in 2010, Alejandro Sanz in 2008, Ana Patricia Botíb in 2007, Carlos Sáinz in 2006, Antonio Banderas in 2005, Pedro Duque in 2003, Cristóbal Halffter in 2002, Isidoro Álvarez in 2001 and Valentín Fuster in 2000.

Others include Plácido Domingo in 1991, Theresa Zabell in 1998, Eduardo Chillida in 1997, Mario Vargas Llosa in 1996, Francisco J Ayala in 1995 and Federico mayor Zaragoza in 1994.
