There has never been a more exciting choice of fine wine from Rioja, where the legacy of the great family traditionalists continues to flourish. At West London Wine School we have selected a number of premium Reservas and Gran Reservas to celebrate the families of Rioja from Muga, CVNE, Contino, La Rioja Alta and Lopez de Heredia. They are making some of Rioja's most exciting, delicious and distinctive wines, and share a winemaking heritage that is unprecedented in Spain.
