Those who’ve been following this blog for a while know I attended last year’s inaugural Tapas Fantasticas event in Brick Lane, London. It was an amazing event. The weather was great, the food was wonderful, and the wine was Rioja … and so fabulous!

You can read my 2008 Tapas Fantasticas review or check out some of the photos.

Unfortunately, last year I was rather preoccupied with the imminent birth of my son so I was only there briefly so I didn’t get a chance to really make the most of it. This year I will be there pouring the wines from Criadores de Rioja, including the Castillo San Lorenzo Rioja Reserva 2004.

This year’s edition is this weekend – 27 & 28 June 2009 (11:30 – 17:30) in Brick Lane Yard, 146 Brick Lane. There are over 20 wineries and more than a dozen restaurants attending. All the information on where it is being held, what restaurants are participating from Rioja and London, and which wineries will be pouring their wines, is on the Wines from Rioja site:


Forget Glastonbury! Ignore the Lions Rugby! Boycott Tweetcamp! Come to Brick Lane to eat some lovely tapas and drink Rioja instead!
