Rioja to bring a taste of Spain to Edinburgh

Published: July 20, 2015

The official start of summer is just around the corner and there’s no better way to celebrate the season than with a refreshing glass of wine and some mouth-watering Spanish food. Wines from Rioja is kicking off the ‘Summer of Tapas Fantasticas’ with a series of events and activities designed to bring a taste of Spain to Scotland.

Experience Rioja in a whole new way in the heart of Edinburgh during the Tapas Fantasticas Tour which will be making a stop at the Edinburgh Foodies Festival (Inverleith Park) from 7th – 9th August. While on site, you’ll be able to taste a spread of some of the region’s best wines (alongside traditional Spanish food from famous London jamón bodega Bar Tozino).

Sip, swirl, taste and learn about delicious Riojan wines during informal masterclasses with wine expert and Saturday Kitchen celebrity – Susy Atkins. Centred around the beautiful pairing of the zesty, savoury flavours of Spanish tapas and the versatility of the crisp whites, deep reds, and bright rosés that have made Rioja famous, the Rioja Summer of Tapas Fantasticas will be not-to-miss this year!
