A Weekend Of Rioja Saturday 11/10/14
The Oxford Wine Company, 165 Botley Road, Oxford, OX2 0PB.
Loving Rioja as much as we do it was great to have a weekend with several bottles open. This gave us the opportunity not just to taste but also to explore the region a little more in depth and find out what makes it tick.
Customers enjoyed finding out about the different levels of oaking and also how variety and sub-region can make a difference. Overall the most popular wine was the Ederra Crianza. People loved the silky fruit and the moderate use of oak.
