El Coto Rioja TintosStop by Paris-Madrid Grocery this Friday, November 18 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. for a free Rioja wine tasting.  Craig Richmond from wine importer Opici Imports will be in the shop, pouring samples of white and red Riojas from Bodegas El Coto and giving background details about each wine.  These are delicious wines, great values, and pair wonderfully with tapas, charcuterie, steak, and a wide selection of foods.   The bright acidity and versatility of Rioja wines make them a great choice to serve at holiday parties or Thanksgiving – and any occasion with rich foods and varied flavors.
