#DWCC #DWCC13 – great last evening@El Rincón del Vino, Logroño

Our 37€ group menu

A group of us had a great #DWCC13 last evening in El Rincón del Vino in the centre of Logroño. This wonderful restaurant – Robert McIntosh's favourite in Logroño – has an amazing list of old Riojas at equally astoundingly good prices to go with their simple but tasty cuisine. As at the BYOB we made our own selection, bought the venerable bottles and then shared the contents.
