As global wine culture gets swept up in specific grapes and sites -- so-called "terroir" -- the great houses of Rioja are keeping the hand of the winemaker firmly on the rudder.

The dry and elevated climate produces such sheer quality of fruit that it only deepens with a phenomenal exposure to time and oak -- up to six years in barrel! -- so that the blended reds they finally allow us to savour are already so aged, so complex and layered that they simply have no parallel in the entire world of wine.

In celebration of this majestic style and tradition, Caros are very pleased to be offering an entire tasting of only the best Reserva and Gran Reserva wines from our leading labels. Top tier Rioja reds were the knock-outs at the end of our Bob Campbell Spanish tasting, but this entire evening is dedicated only to this most noble and memorable, premium Rioja experience.

Among the top tiers from La Rioja Alta, Muga, Cune, and Remelluri will be the legendary La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 (the wine of the night on the Spanish tasting) as well as the top Gran Reserva from Muga, which sells at well over $100 and is simply known as the Torre Muga.

This special event will be led and hosted by John Caro, who will talk you through all the factors that make these classics so timeless. Guests will also enjoy a Spanish food accompaniment lovingly prepared by parents and in-house chefs, Maurice and Mary-Jane Caro.

When: 6:30 pm on Wednesday October 17th
Where: Caro’s Grey Lynn, 14 MacKelvie Street
Cost: $75 per person
