Rioja 10 x 10 Trade Tasting

Rioja 10 x 10 - Trade tasting highlights

Rioja 10 x 10 Trade Tasting - 2018 highlights

 

On Tuesday 9th October, Wines from Rioja hosted it’s third Rioja 10x10 trade tasting event at the Grade II listed building, Banking Hall, London.  

 

 

Over 250 trade attendees came to the event to explore the 100 top wines of Rioja, including wine experts from leading UK publications, Decanter, The Drinks Business, The Financial Times, The Daily Telegraph and many more. The 100 award-winning wines we’re chosen across the following stylistic categories:

  • Unoaked Whites
  • Oaked Whites
  • Rosado
  • Crianza
  • Reserva (£10 - £14.99)
  • Reserva (over £15)
  • Gran Reserva
  • Genérico (Premium over £15)
  • Non-Tempranillo Reds
  • Women Winemakers – new for 2018

 

 

The wines were selected, from a blind tasting earlier this year, by a panel of leading industry experts and chaired by Rioja authorities Tim Atkin MW and Sarah Jane Evans MW. Within the 100 wines, both chairs also selected five stand-out wines, known as the 'Chair's Choices' which were highlighted at the tasting too. 

 

 

Hundreds of samples were submitted, with only the top 10 scoring wines from each category making through to the final 10 x 10 tasting line-up.  

 

 

Brand new this year, attendees also enjoyed an exclusive 'Spotlight on Rioja' masterclass hosted by a panel of experts including Richard Siddle, founder of trade publication The Buyer, Spanish Wine buyer at Bibendum, Jamie Avenell, wine consultant and educator, Raul Diaz, and Dawn Mannis, founder of The Sampler.
