Ramón Bilbao’s chief winemaker, Rodolfo Bastida, addresses the audience at a packed out tasting in London celebrating 20 years of the Rioja estate’s top drop, Mirto. “At Ramón Bilbao we have always believed that origin plays a very important role, and that wines can talk about the landscape they come from. We believe that our future lies in continuing to make these terroir-driven, vineyard-specific, wines”, he said.

The tasting explored the vast diversity of altitudes, soils and microclimates within Rioja, and included a tasting of Bastida’s high altitude wines from Alabos, Villalba, and Monte Yerga.
