Karl Elwood, Chris Mansfield, Sandra Murphy and Alex Ryan cordially invite you to attend the Business Leaders Wine Club tasting and networking event on the 29th March 2023.

A unique and exclusive opportunity to combine fabulous wines and networking with a small group of people who have a common interest in wine and business. 

It may be necessary to restrict number of tickets per person subject to take-up.

Out of stock


There will be a presentation on the wines from Bodegas Luis Cañas based in Rioja for this event and a chance to put your blending skills to the test.

In 1970 Luis Cañas changed two hundred years of tradition and became the first winemaker in Rioja Alavesa to bottle his young wine rather than sell it as bulk.

This bold move, and his continued pioneering spirit, has cemented the winery’s enviable reputation as one of the most progressive in the region. Sheltered below the watchful Sierra Cantabria, the vineyards are all old, small plots on chalky-clay soils with a dedicated team of vineyard workers carrying out organic practices and a purpose built, fully equipped accommodation block was built for the entire vineyard team in 2006.

As always, there will be some fabulous cheeses from The Cheeseman, Tony Cowling, plus some excellent networking opportunities.  Keep an eye on our social media for further details.

We hope you can join us!
