DETAILS: Upon check-in, guests will receive a welcome glass of sangria de Rioja and a "Trail of the Elephants" tasting sheet, listing the "bar" and the wines at that bar. We will stamp each bar as you taste and when you have tasted all of the wines, you will be entered to win a Rioja-themed prize.
There will be 4 or 5 taperias (tapas bars) stations set up in the Wine Expo wine bar. Each station will feature various "pintxos"- small bites of different delicacies on spikes (toothpicks) and 3-4 wines, for a total of 12-15 wines.
