Think you know Rioja? Well it’s time for a re-set. Gone are the days of excessive oak ageing and uniformity across the region. Rioja needs to be appreciated in the same way that we view Burgundy or Barolo. Terroir is the key and every village has a story to tell.

Join us for what should be a fascinating evening as we take a site specific look into Rioja – one of only two regions to hold Spain’s top-tier DOCa classification.

Hosted by the fabulous Scott Wasley, from importer The Spanish Acquisition, we’ll taste through 10 stunning examples of Tempranillo and Garnacha. With over 20 years experience, importing some of the most exciting wine producers representing the modern face of Spain, Scott will guide us through the geographical origin and identity of the landscape and the inherent beauty that is expressed through the wines.

Your ticket includes carefully selected Spanish cheese & charcuterie from leading Melbourne importer, La Central. A fantastic night, not to be missed!
