Spanish vineyards are making sure British drinkers are well stocked with Rioja by shipping as much wine as they can ahead of a potential hard Brexit.
The Spanish Wine Federation has been advising members on how to minimize the impact of the UK possibly crashing out of the EU with no deal, including making advance plans for transportation and ensuring that wines are correctly labeled.
La Rioja is the largest of the European wine-exporting regions in terms of volume shipped to the UK. In the first nine months of last year, its wineries sold 32 million liters, a third of their global exports, to the British market.
