Paired tasting at La Vieja Bodega to inaugurate its 30th Anniversary

La Vieja Bodega opens the celebration of its 30th Anniversary with a paired wine tasting with Bodegas Martínez Lacuesta.

26 Apr 2024 | ,

La Vieja Bodega de Casalarreina, one of the gastronomic temples of La Rioja, celebrates its 30th Anniversary with a series of events (30 in total) that will take place throughout 2024, the year in which it has obtained general recognition by achieving its first Sol Repsol. Under the guidance of Ángel Pérez, La Vieja Bodega has designed a series of activities to commemorate the occasion, highlighting the relationship between gastronomy and the world of wine, culture and art. From the end of April to the beginning of October, the programme will include painting, sculpture and photography exhibitions, book presentations, wine tastings, concerts and a big party on 16 May. In addition, twenty emblematic dishes from La Vieja Bodega will be reintroduced as part of an effort to celebrate its history and evolution over the last 30 years.

And Bodegas Martínez Lacuesta has had the honour of inaugurating this series of events with a Paired Tasting in which five great wines of our house and five great elaborations of La Vieja Bodega could be enjoyed. Andrea Llorente, our head of the Communication and Wine Tourism Department, was in charge of leading the event and presenting the history of our winery and our wines, once again extolling our commitment to well understood classicism and Haro’s eternal relationship with time.
