At Bodegas Riojanas, we are pleased to be associated with José Souto and Westminster Kingsway College. José is an exceptional Chef and tutor, inspiring his students and those around him, so we were delighted to sponsor his and Steve Lee’s The Game Larder books. In Feathers, our UK Manager Dave Roles, an Honorary Fellow of the College with over 40 years in the wine trade, matched José’s dishes with our wines.
Dave has matched 8 wines to the dishes José has submitted for this edition of Talking Game, all of which are among the wines offered to readers at specially discounted rates.
All will be shipped in a minimum of 6 bottle cases directly from Spain; prices include UK Duty, shipping, delivery and VAT.
To order, and for more details and availability of older vintages, please contact
or by phone on 07816 322599, quoting ‘Talking Game offer’.
Bodegas Riojanas was formed in 1890 by the merger of two wine producing families – the Artacho family and Rafael Carreras – that already had a hundred years experience of wine production in Rioja. Today the fifth generation of the same family controls more than 300ha of the best vineyards around Cenicero and SanVincente de Sonsierra.
While staying true to its regional wine making traditions, Bodegas Riojanas is also at the forefront of innovation, working with the University of Logrono in perfecting wine production. In 1978 it was the first winery to have its vintage followed and ratified by the Consejo Regulador, following the wines from inception to labelling and making it the only Rioja vintage to have official guarantees prior to 1980.
Its brands of Monte Real, Vina Albina and Puerta Vieja are enjoyed in over 64 countries around the world. In the late 1990s the family started to look outside of its Rioja heartland, and in 1999 Bodegas Torreduero was opened in Toro. Using Rioja techniques, the Toro wines were soon winning awards, and the company now also has wineries in Rias Baixas, Rueda, Ribera, Cava, Monterrei, and Bierzo.
