Rioja Masters 2018

Now in its seventh 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
  • Rioja 15 years and older

The judging panel, chaired by the drinks business, will be composed exclusively of Master of Wine, Master Sommeliers and buyers. The panel will award the best wines with medals from Bronze through to Gold, with the opportunity to be rewarded a Master for exceptional wines. The results will be published in the Spanish Report and The Drinks Business Hong Kong edition.

The administration fee is £140 per wines entered.
