Valenciso Rioja Dinner with Diego Santana

Valenciso Rioja Dinner
with Diego Santana

“Valenciso is one of the most modern of the traditional producers, or the most traditional of the modern producers. I love their wines, which offer good typicity and drinking pleasure...they deserve more attention than they get.”
Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate



From all the commentary on what has been termed ‘The New Spain’, Parr and Mackay really catch the spirit in their Sommelier’s Atlas of Taste: “If any country can challenge our claim that Italy has Europe’s most exciting wine regions, without question it is Spain”. And, today there is arguably no more exciting region within Spain than Rioja.

Hailing from the far north Rioja Alta, Valenciso continues to etch out its own distinctive space in the Rioja story. Whether it’s their organic work in the vines, or their experimentation in the cellar—with whole bunch ferments and cement vessels and the like—year in, year out, every wine from this producer points to constant progression.

Join us at Movida Aqui on the 11th of April for an intimate dinner with Diego Santana of Valenciso.

We will taste three brackets of incredible Riojan wine all paired with some of Melbourne's best Spanish cuisine.

Without a doubt, this night is set to be an extraordinary exploration of Valenciso, but tickets are very limited, so get yours now to avoid disappointment.



If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know as soon as possible to allow the restaurant to cater to your needs.
