Barwell & Jones set to highlight its Rioja wine house
Barwell & Jones plans to launch an “invigorated campaign” to promote its new Rioja wine house, Marques de Riscal, in the UK.
The two historic companies joined forces in September last year, and together they have injected significant investments into the business and pledged to reveal “exciting plans” for 2017.
The new partnership will be officially unveiled at the Wines from Spain tasting on 9 March in London where the company will showcase a selection of new vintages including Riscal’s 2012 Baron de Chirel, 2007 Gran Reserva and the 2016 Rueda Verdejo.
Director Ashley Coe said: “We are incredibly excited to represent such a prestigious, family-owned brand. Marques de Riscal’s philosophy of respect for the past while looking ahead to the future, resonated with our own and we look forward to bringing these fantastic wines to a wider audience. Their wines sit perfectly within our portfolio and our strong focus on the Iberian Peninsula.”
