A spectacular variety of red, white and rosé wines from some of Rioja’s most famous vineyards will be available for you to taste as you make your way around the vibrant wine and tapas stalls. Savour a diverse selection of tapas from London’s finest Spanish restaurants who will recreate the famous tapas streets of the Rioja region where you can go from bar to bar sampling a speciality dish and glass of delicious local wine in each.
There will be plenty to entertain – enjoy live Spanish music, cookery demonstrations, wine tasting workshops and wine walks, children’s activities and an unforgettable eating and drinking experience. Purchase your wine glass on entry and receive four tokens which can be exchanged for samples of top class Rioja wines.
