We are delighted to welcome Francisco Corpas export manager for La Rioja Alta, who will host the tasting in our ever-popular wine lounge. Francisco knows more about La Rioja Alta than most, and is a fantastic host bringing his Spanish Panache mixed with incredible knowledge of the estate.
La Rioja Alta hold an unparalleled reputation in Rioja and make arguably the finest wines in the region. They also make one of the most sought-after and famous wines in Spain: The Gran Reserva 890 (their top wine). The company was founded in 1890 by five Riojan and Basque families, and was one of the first to have a Woman (Doña Saturnina García Cid y Gárate) as its first president.
In this tasting we will not only get to try their fantastic Rioja Estate, but also their new ventures across Spain which includes a fantastic Albarino Estate in Rías Baixas, and their Ribera del Duero state which allows them to experiment with winemaking techniques that are restricted in rioja, allowing them to make a “modern expression” of the classic La Rioja Alta. Needless to say these wines are perfect for this time of the year, and show some of the finest Spanish wines from entry level through to some of the most expensive most iconic wines in Spain.
