The Giants of Rioja: La Rioja Alta and Lopez de Heredia
October 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education along with Solo Vino wine shop present a very special evening featuring two of the world’s greatest wineries.
If there are two wineries that define the history and “old school” style of Rioja, it is La Rioja Alta and Lopez de Heredia. These two stand head and shoulders above all others in terms of bringing the exotic, rich, deep, and earthy aromas and flavors associated with top level Rioja.
And we are going to taste a ton of them on October 24th.
Join us for a special night of tasting the portfolios of these great companies. The beautiful room at the University Club of St. Paul will be the site for this walk around event, with stations in each corner staffed by wine experts, plus a Twin Cities Wine Education “Rioja Learning” table with maps, handouts, and discussion to grow your Rioja education.
