Bloggers stage net arena for Rioja

The event is being described as "a first attempt to bring together different voices from the wine blogosphere from throughout Europe and the rest of the world to drink, eat and discuss".

The conference will include sessions on writing and the rating of wine, plus tastings and visits to wineries.

The event is being organised by UK blogger Robert McIntosh and is expected to attract between 30 and 40 delegates.
