We’re hugely excited to invite you to taste a range of wines from Spanish superstars La Rioja Alta.

Founded in 1890 the Sociedad Vinícola de La Rioja Alta has long been one of Spain’s premier producers. Most famous for their premium aged Riojas, oak is at the core of their ageing process. They therefore manufacture sll their own barrels —which currently number about 30,000! - using completely artisanal methods.

Their range of Riojas is truly fabulous, so we’re itching to crack open the MArtelo Reserva (94 points) Vina Ardanza (95 points) Vina Arana Gran Reserva (97 points) and the 904 Gran Reserva (97 points)

However, there is more to the group than just fantastic Riojas. Also on offer will be a delicious red from their property in Ribera and a shining example of the ever-popular Albarino from Galicia. Their Galician property was acquired over 30 years ago – showing a fantastic level of foresight.

Talking us through the range will be the hugely knowledgeable Simon Stagnell from importer Armit Wines.

As always there will be a 15% discount on the night – allowing you the opportunity to take your favourites home to enjoy all over again!
