Thursday 13 June
Hosted by export director of Zinio Bodegas Mariola Varona and Elliott O'Mara, from Awin Barratt Siegel Wine Agencies in Stamford. This is an opportunity to discover the great wines of La Rioja Alta, Urunuela, Spain.
Zinio Bodegas was born as a winery in 1986. Established as a cooperative by 200 viticulturists who made their land available to the winery, leaving a great legacy to all the staff who work in it. All this was possible thanks to the effort, commitment & fight for a common dream.
The land, located in the heart of Rioja Alta, gives a privileged position compared to other wineries with a Rioja denomination, which for the most part do not own all the grapes they sell. With this they achieve comprehensive control from the field to the bottle.
At Zinio Bodegas they have a strong conviction: 'Wine is made in the vineyard', which is why for them it is so important to care for the vineyard and carry out all the necessary actions to obtain top quality grapes, & consequently make excellent wines.
This all lends itself to an exciting and interesting evening. As usual Head Chef Ben and our kitchen team will create a seasonal menu to match the wines.
The evening starts in The Barn at 7pm, an opportunity to meet and mingle with other guests. At 7.30 we all sit down for dinner, around The Barn table, with wines to accompany each course,
On the night, Mariola will guide us through the wines, explaining the different styles and winemaking methods that make each of these wines so different and so special.
It is probably best to have booked a taxi home. However, you are welcome to leave your car here overnight or book one of our six luxurious rooms at Beech House.
We are sure you will have an enjoyable evening, with good food, great wines and convivial company, and hopefully you will have learned something about the magic of wine.
