Casa Roja 2019
Martínez Bujanda have brought a “new benchmark of quality to Rioja” (The Independent). This top family estate stretches back five generations to when the winery was little more than a red hut – Casa Roja. These days the cellar is state of the art and the passion for excellence that has seen the Bujandas through depression and civil war has not changed. Tony Laithwaite first imported wine from Martínez Bujanda in the 1980s. The friendship runs deep, which is just as well because, since Casa Roja won double Gold in its first vintage and three more awards after that, everyone wants it. Fortunately we have exclusivity in the UK. It’s a lovely, supple, berry filled red that will add pleasure to simple meals of chicken kebabs or rice pilaf.
