Tapas Fantasticas at Potters Fields Park

Now in its third year, the popular, free festival which celebrates Rioja wine and Spanish tapas, invites you to come and taste a spectacular variety of red, white and rosé wines from some of Rioja's most famous vineyards as you make your way around the vibrant wine and tapas stalls.

Savour a diverse selection of tapas from both London's finest Spanish restaurants and tapas chefs from the home of Rioja, who will be flying in for the weekend to cook up an authentic taste of the region.

New activity for 2010 includes live cookery demonstrations by top Spanish chef Jose Pizarro from Borough Market's Tapas Brindisa restaurant.

Visitors can also sign up for wine tasting seminars with wine experts Olly Smith and Susy Atkins to learn more about Rioja and discover what tickles their taste buds.

A festival for all the family, there will be plenty more to entertain, including live Spanish music and a shaded area especially for children, where they can create a huge, colourful paper vine along the Thames - perfect for keeping your little ones amused.

Visitors will receive four complimentary tokens which can be exchanged for samples of top class Rioja wines when they buy a wine glass on entering the festival. Visitors can also purchase tapas dishes and glasses of wine from all exhibiting restaurants and wineries throughout the day.

  • Fri & Sat 12 noon-8pm; Sun 12 noon-6pm
  • FREE Purchase a wine glass for £2 and get four tokens to sample four different wines
