The top 100 wines of the Rioja region were showcased at an iconic South Bank location on 17th October, and those lucky enough to bag a ticket had the chance to sample them all!
The wines on show were selected by a panel of wine experts including sommeliers, journalists, and restaurateurs. The 100 wines were split into four stylistic categories to demonstrate the variety of flavours within the region. Attendees tasted crisp whites and luscious rosés, light and fruity reds, and bolder, rich reds. These were paired with a menu of international foods to demonstrate Rioja wines’ versatility and ability to pair with a range of cuisines. The Rioja rosados offered a match made in heaven with curry, while the fruity Rioja Crianza went down a treat with the tacos.
The evening was one of discovery, with Aidy Smith, wine expert and personality running speed tastings throughout the night, teaching groups all about Rioja wine and the region.
