Amores Wines was delighted to welcome their Russian partner, Rusimport, to their winery Marqués de Vargas in Rioja last Thursday, 1 May.
The visit marked the first of many to the Amores Wines vineyards where the prestigious Russian importer conducted several tastings from the Amores Wines portfolio of wines. During their visit, a delegation from Rusimport had the chance to meet Don Pelayo de la Mata, the actual Marqués de Vargas after whom the winery is named. During the visit, the Marques led the tastings and gave special insight into the origin and creation of these unique wines.
The following day, a special tasting was arranged for the importer in one of Bilbao’s favourite eateries where Rusimport had an opportunity to taste many of the finest DO wines from the Amores Wines catalogue, including selections from Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Rias Baixas as well as some of their superb Cavas from DO Penedes.
Amores Wines was proud to welcome Rusimport to their wineries having signed a €1 million contract earlier this year under which the importer acquired the distribution rights to the Marques de Vargas and Prios collection from the Amores Wines catalogue for the Russian market.
