The week in pictures

db’s Lucy Shaw headed to Hide in Mayfair this week to explore the velvety and supremely elegant Riojas of boutique estate Remirez de Ganuza, based in Rioja Alavesa. The lavish lunch was hosted by the estate’s co-owner, José Ramón Otasun, who spoke candidly about the new classification system in Rioja and whether or not it benefits small estates like Remirez de Ganuza, and the best way forward for the global promotion of Rioja.

During the lunch we enjoyed a selection of wines from the Remirez de Ganuza portfolio, including a barrel-fermented white, a carbonic maceration easy drinking red, and top drop like the estate’s Gran Reserva 2005.
