Final call for Rioja Masters 2017 entries

Final entries are now being accepted for The Drinks Business Rioja Masters 2017 ahead of the upcoming deadline.

Producers wishing to take part have until 21 August to enter and submit their wines. Now in its sixth year, the competition will recognise and reward the finest Riojas on the world stage. A panel of leading industry experts will judge the wines submitted in a blind tasting to discover the best examples from this incredible region in six categories: Joven, Crianza, Reserva, Gran Reserva, vinos de autor and Rioja 15 years and older.

An expert panel of judges composed exclusively of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and senior buyers will judge the wines, chaired by db editor-in-chief Patrick Schmitt MW. The wines will be tasted blind and the panel will award the best wines with medals from Bronze through to Gold. ‘Master’ is reserved for the exceptional and standout wines of the day.

The results of the tasting and accompanying analysis will be published in the drinks business magazine, online, on social media and also in the Hong Kong edition.

The cost is £140 per entry, and three samples of each submitted wine will be required to insure against damage.

Those wishing to enter should fill in the online entry form. For more information, please contact Sophie Raichura on Sophie@thedrinksbusiness.com or +852 3488 1008.
