2014
24 November

 

B-21 Wine Company was founded in 1948 and is one of Florida's top independent wine & spirits retailers. Beginning in 2010, B-21 and Rioja Wines joined forces to promote Rioja wines though special online offers, store tastings, special guest dinners and Rioja seminars. Several members of the B-21 family visited Rioja in 2013 to visit their favorite wineries and gorge themselves on tapas on the famous Calle Laurel! With the store in Tarpon Springs, Florida, B-21 offers over 70 Riojas to 38 states via their strong Internet presence. We caught up Director of Operations Justin Hammer for a quick interview.
