On our recent trip to Rioja we were lucky enough to visit CVNE ,or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España..
With three wineries in the region; Cune, Viña Real and Contino
A lively crowd of 35 wine lovers enjoyed an aperitif of Monopole , a crisp fresh 100% Viura on the terrace http://www.missbouquet.com/events/view/rioja-tasting-at-fredericks/
We then tasted a variety of fantastic wines presented by Oscar Urrutia Export Manager of CVNE –
Cune Crianza 2010
Imperial Reserva 2008
Viña Real Reserva 2009
Viña Real Gran Reserva 2007
Contino Viña del Olivo 2009
The wines were served with a fabulous 3 course dinner –
Starter :Candied, golden & red beetroot, toasted pine nuts, Berkswell cheese
A most memorable night as it celebrated the 5th Anniversary of WanderCurtis Wine Events . The evening of the Scottish referendum and Tim Kelly’s 50th birthday.
We highly recommend the food , atmosphere and service at http://www.fredericks.co.uk and plan to have many more of our Events there .
