In our LAST Wine Survival Guide we talk climate change, ancient grapes and guitar-offs with Miguel Torres – and reveal our Top 5 Rioja Tips.
The world-famous Familia Torres has so far invested €15m to combat climate change. Initiatives include planting at higher altitudes and reviving ancient grape varieties that are better suited to a warming and extreme climate. We taste the results.
Rob asks how to find reliable and affordable Rioja. We give a few handy pointers on how to find the right Rioja for you, and reveal some of our favourite producers and wines. Our next episode will revert to our usual Wine Blast format and is about…rosé!
