Description:

Almost forgotten as a category a decade ago, demand for traditional, long-ageing Rioja is at a new high. We’ll highlight the trend with current and back vintages from two of the most traditional producers. Bodegas Faustino is large house with beautifully fresh, expressive and pure wines that age extremely well. ‘A benchmark for a long ageing Rioja with quality,’ writes Decanter.

López de Heredia needs little introduction as we taste though some of the world’s most traditional wines. We will end with a vertical of Gran Reservas going back to 1970!

Wine Cellar offers the greatest wine region in the world en-primeur (as futures). 2017 will be our 17th Bordeaux campaign and will be offered from April 2018 onwards for delivery in 2020.
