***SOLD OUT*** Wine: an introduction to the wines of La Rioja

Event Date:

October 5, 2023

Event Time:

6:30 pm

Event Location:

Bar Rioja

Camino and the newly opened Bar Rioja’s founder Richard Bigg will be joining us to share his knowledge and experience of some of the 43 wines on Bar Rioja’s list. Having been invested into the prestigious Gran Orden de Caballeros de Vino (an exclusive group of some of the most exceptional contributors to the world of Spanish wine in the UK) Richard’s commitment to celebrating Spanish wines is recognised not just by those who visit his bar and restaurants but also by his peers, including a few friends of the BritishSpanish Society; chair Sarah Jane Evans, Jose Pizarro and Norrel Robertson. 

We’ll enjoy a glass of something sparkling on arrival and Richard will then share 6 wines with us, giving an introduction to the wines, their history, composition and flavours, accompanied by tales from the trips across Spain which led him to discover each wine. Richard will encourage anecdotes, questions and more tales of our shared love of Spain, wine and Spanish wine from the group. We’ll also sample a couple of tiny teasers from the Bar Rioja food menu as we taste the wines.

Assuming your tastebuds will be tickled Richard has kindly offered a 20% discount on any food or wine in Bar Rioja or next door restaurant Camino for members of the group who make a reservation to stay and enjoy more wine and dinner after the event. Please let Lisa know if you would like to make a reservation and she will handle the booking for you. 

We hope you’ll find the evening to be a casual celebration of wine, informative and most importantly a chance to relax and enjoy wine with friends.   

This event is limited to 20 spaces, please book early to avoid disappointment. 

If you experience any problems with your booking please contact Lisa on info@britishspanishsociety.org
