About Ramón Bilbao:
Ramón Bilbao Murga, the pioneer that founded Ramón Bilbao winery, was a dreamer and an explorer. The idea of travelling the world transporting bottles of wine possessed him and became a lifelong pursuit.
Since 1924, Bodegas Ramón Bilbao has grown, changed and developed under the guidance of Chief Winemaker, Rodolfo Bastida. The winery is now the number one Rioja in the Spanish on trade, and is widely considered one of the country’s most innovative producers. This year the winery was named one of the '50 Most Admired Wine Brands by Drinks International'.
Based in Haro but with wineries in Rueda and in Rias Baixas, Ramón Bilbao produces modern wines which express the unique terroirs where they are made.
Here are some of the wines you can expect to taste this Wednesday:
