Come experience the Riojan Young and Fresh…Wines! Rioja Joven y Fresco Event Recap

Every year Lo Mejor del Vino de Rioja holds an event to allow wineries in La Rioja to present their newest released wines. This includes the 2012 release of white, rose and young red wines. What is great about this event is that it gets the younger generation out and trying the young wines of La Rioja, who normally drink “cubatas” or mixed drinks instead of wine.

This is a great event for wine lovers and new wine lovers as it allows you to try five wines and compare them.

Pedro Balda, winemaker of La Rad- Pedro Balda-Viticultor, and Julio Carreter, winemaker of the Torres Winery- Rioja- Ibericos join me today to help explain the event.

If you happen to be in La Rioja over the summer, it is worth checking out http://www.lomejordelvinoderioja.com/ for upcoming wine events. Salud!!
