A classic white wine reception followed by a three course themed meal with top premium wines.

La Rioja Alta is the finest producer of the traditional style of Rioja in my opinion. In the 80s and 90s I spent seven years working in the Spanish wine trade and tasted my way through all the top Riojas loads of times. Yes, Rioja has changed since then and new Bodegas making modern style wines have emerged, but LRA has kept on producing very fine traditional wines in Rioja that constantly win awards. We'll taste five top wines amongst which will be absolute Rioja classics like the wonderfully elegant Vina Arana Reserva 2009 (£22.95) and the plump and juicy Vina Ardanza Reserva 2008 (£22.95). However, this is also a company that produces modern, contemporary wine from the quality Ribera del Duero region in their Bodegas Aster facility and we’ll be tasting the very top wine from there, the wonderful and amazingly complex Finca el Otero 2012 (£34.99).

This dinner tasting will be presented by Francisco Corpas from La Rioja Alta who will tell us the full story of this famous Bodega and its wines – and it’s a story well worth hearing! Top class winemaking across the board with some really fabulous wines.

The evening will feature a specially themed three course dinner to go with the wines created by head chef Paul Bell.
