Meet our Rioja heroes

Meet our Rioja heroes 2015 

In London, this November, we honoured six industry personalities and friends for their contribution to Rioja wine. During a canapé reception at traditional Spanish restaurant, Hispania London, guests enjoyed a delicious selection of wines from the Rioja 10x10 – a list of 10 top wines in 10 different categories selected by an expert panel.


The star studded line up included Olly Smith from Saturday Kitchen, as Communicator of the Year, leading Spanish chef José Pizarro for On-Trade Personality of the Year with awards also going to Woman & Home wine writer Tim Atkin MW and BBC Good Food and Masterchef wine expert Sarah Jane Evans MW for their outstanding contribution to the category, as well as Simon Jerrome of leading restaurant supplier Matthew Clark for Distributor of the Year and Beth Willard, Spanish buyer for Laithwaites, who picked up Retailer of the Year.
