Wines of Rioja Master Class
Rioja is one of the world's most popular and respected wine producing regions. Famous for mouth wateringly spicy, full bodied, oak aged red wines Rioja is able to surprise and delight too. Join us to enjoy outstanding Rioja Reserva and Gran Reserva reds and also to discover what surprises Rioja has to offer including Traditional Method Sparkling wines! We'll learn why Riojan wines taste the way they do, how important the blending is and how the time spent ageing in oak barrels influences the wines.
This master class will be hosted by Louise Bartholdi. Prior to joining the Newcastle Wine School team Louise worked for over ten years with one of Spain's leading, family owned producers with several vineyards throughout the length and breadth of Spain, including the award winning Bodegas Beronia in Rioja. Louise has led many happy visits to Rioja, educating groups of both consumers and wine trade professionals.
If you enjoy Rioja and would like to learn a little more then this expert led Master Class is a unique opportunity to taste at least 7 Riojan wines including top quality Reserva and Gran Reserva accompanied by appropriate Spanish nibbles.
