UK: Wines from Rioja readies fresh generic ad push
Wines from Rioja has launched a new generic advertising campaign in the UK.
The marketing organisation for all Rioja wine producers in the UK said today (27 August) that 'Talk Rioja' will target the young professional audience, aged between 25 and 44, in the country.

The campaign will launch next month and includes print and outdoor advertising, with 180 central London buses carrying the ads from 8 September for two weeks. Print adverts will run in national newspapers and lifestyle magazines, including Guardian Weekend, The Independent, Observer Magazine, The Times Magazine, London Lite, GQ, Red and Grazia.

Participating retailers will be offered POS material, funding from the regional body in Spain of up to 50% of costs, and the chance for one retailer to win a trip to Spain.
