There was a touch of British resilience on the Southbank on the 15th, 16th June as more than 12,000 hungry and thirsty festival-goers made for Potters Fields Park to soak up a bit of Spanish culture at Rioja Tapas Fantasticas, despite the clouds emptying around them.
With 33 Rioja wineries pouring a range of delicious wines, some of the UK’s best Spanish restaurants cooked everything from morcilla con alegrísto to salpicon de marisco, while wine experts Olly Smith and Susy Atkins educated visitors on Riojan wines. Here is a selection of pictures from the weekend. I think it’s safe to say it takes more than a few drops of rain to stop the British public making the most of summer. Besides, it’s nothing a drop of Rioja can’t fix!
