The event, which saw Matías Calleja and Beatriz Paniagua talk through each wine as guests sampled them with their food, was organised by Cambridge Wine Royston and held in the Old Bull Inn.

Guest Cally Read said: "It was a very sophisticated event. I didn't know much about wine going into it, but after spending the evening with wine experts, I now know about Rioja, and how to distinguish between the different varieties of wine. It was good fun, I'd definitely go again."
