We're thrilled to invite you to an extraordinary dinner with Marqués de Murrieta. You'll get to taste rare vintages and exclusive Rioja pours, paired to an exquisite Wally's meal. 

At our special dinner event, this renowned Rioja producer is pouring a lineup of coveted Castillo Ygay vintages, including rare bottles from the vault. 

Established in 1852, Marqués de Murrieta is one of the top producers in Rioja, Spain's most famous wine region. At this iconic, family-owned estate, only the best vintages are used for Castillo Ygay releases, which are always highly rated and sought after. 

The most recent release was no exception, receiving a perfect 100 point rating from James Suckling. 

Guests at our dinner will experience a culinary journey of Castillo Ygay wines paired to mouthwatering dishes prepared by Wally's chefs. 

You'll get to drink Marqués de Murrieta's newest 100-point release, which has been beautifully aged for 10 years. You'll also enjoy the rare 1980 and 1965 vintages from the vault, plus the highest rated white wine in Spanish history (and an extremely rare bottle!).

All these historic vintages are perfectly fresh and lively pairings for an opulent Wally's dinner.
