Tuesday 3rd October sees the third year of the Rioja 10 x 10 event at Banking Hall EC3, and Donostia Social Club will be catering the whole event.
This year is the first time this previously industry only event, will open to the public. Here you will have the opportunity to taste 100 wines from Spain's best known and illustrious wine region, and indulge in unlimited tapas all for £35! Sounds pretty good eh?
