Celebrate Burns Night 2019 with a glass of Rioja Reserva

Celebrate Burns Night 2019 with a glass of Rioja Reserva

 

“Go fetch to me a pint o wine, And fill it in a silver tassie. That I may drink before I go, A service to my bonie lassie.” – Robert Burns, My Bonnie Mary

 

While many people assume Scotch Whisky to be the usual tipple for a Burns Night celebration, Rabbie Burns was a well-known advocate of a good glass of wine. In this spirit, a bottle of Rioja Reserva is the perfect addition to an evening of wintery chill, poetry and, of course, haggis.

 

Ripe red berries, warming spice and a juicy oak flavour can, not only hold its own against Scotland’s most notorious dish, but tastily complement the hearty mix of meat, spices and seasoning of a traditional haggis. 

 

Whether you go traditional or for a vegetarian haggis, we love this one from Jamie Oliver: https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/lamb-recipes/haggis-neeps-tatties/

 

So experience a Rioja Reserva this Burns Night and be pleasantly surprised with an unconventional, yet delightful, pairing with all things Scottish.
