Discover Rioja – Spain’s premier and most famous wine region.
For over a century and a quarter Rioja’s traditional age-worthy Reservas and Gran Reservas have set the standard for Spain’s red wines. This exciting tasting seminar will examine the region’s full range of ageing potential through a vertical library tasting of Bodegas Faustino featuring one wine from each decade starting from 1964 through 2011. This is a rare opportunity to explore the deep ageing cellars of Bodegas Faustino.
Taste and learn about indigenous grapes of the region, including the Tempranillo variety, Spain’s most noble grape and one of the world’s greatest expressions of red wine.
Join famed Rioja devotee and European wine expert Robin Kelley O’Connor, CWE, and Nicholas Daddona, Advanced Sommelier, of WineBid for this interactive tasting of Spanish wines. Enjoy an assortment of Tapas to compliment the selected wines.
