Press Release: The Night of Wine – Rioja Edition

The TOP 100 Riojas wines in Berlin

Outstanding wines, delicious tapas and cool music cheered up at The Night of Wine in Berlin. The 100 best Rioja wines were presented to over 500 visitors on October 20th.

Hamburg/Logroño, October 24, 2018. The famous Spanish wine region of Rioja, which is particularly appreciated worldwide for its matured red wines, is multifaceted: On October 20, The Night of Wine – Rioja Edition took place in the Heeresbäckerei in Kreuzberg. In a cool loft atmosphere the TOP 100 Rioja wines were tasted.

The event concept, which combines wine tasting with a party and started in Cologne in 2015, has already been successfully held in many German cities. Now, for the first time, a Spanish wine region was hosting the largest pop-up wine bar in Germany.

The focus was on the Rioja Top 100 wines, which were recently selected by a jury of experts from the Meininger publishing house. They not only reflect the concentrated red wine expertise of the region, but also fantastic white and rosé wines were represented.

 

 

 

 

In the afternoon, 60 experts had the opportunity to get to know all wines with Rioja expert David Schwarzwälder in a cool loft atmosphere. From 19:30 the gates opened to more than 500 private wine lovers. The wines were divided according to style into five tables: Gran Reservas, Reservas, Crianzas, Genéricos, Blancos and Rosados. At each table, Rioja Wine Educators and trained sommeliers provided advice to their guests and helped with the difficult choice.

 

 

 

 

At 9:30 pm, the open tasting was exchanged for a wine bar and dance floor. DJ Johnny Hitman from Soul Stop created party atmosphere with a mixture of disco, soul and funk. Delicious tapas matched to the wines and round off the evening for all the senses.
