Hostess: Gloria Carrero

La Rioja Alta make a magnificent range of Rioja wines which have been a significant feature of the Hambleton list for almost 40 years. We have always loved them because the wines have never seemed excessively oaked , as some traditional Rioja houses, but nor have they followed the modern “fruit bomb” fashion. “904” in particular is a personal favourite.

The firm have now spread their wings to include wine making properties in Rias Baixas (Albarino) , Ribeira del Duero (Aster) and Rioja Alavesa (Torre de Ona) some of which will be included in our dinner.
