Gourmet Dinners Sold Out

Thu 15 Apr 2004

Luis Valentin, winemaker and producer of our award winning Rioja Valenciso Reserva, recently gave a fascinating insight to Spanish wines at two gourmet dinners during March 2004.




At the first dinner, held at the presitigious Royal Automobile Club (RAC), Pall Mall, Luis enthralled diners with his knowledge of wines from the different wine regions (Denominacion de Origen) of Spain, using the wines from our list to illustrate his talk.



At the second dinner, hosted at the exlcusive Relais & Chateaux hotel Hambleton Hall on the side of Rutland Water, the focus was on Rioja. Luis contrasted the traditional, modern and avantgarde styles of wine making in Rioja, as well as the different grape varieties currently approved for making wine under the Rioja label, through paired tastings of different wines.



If you would like information on any future dinners we are planning, or if you are interested in hosting a gourmet dinner at your hotel or restaurant, please contact us.



The wines were accompanied by specially prepared gourmet meals by the chefs at the RAC and Hambleton Hall. For more information on the menus, please click below:
