Miguel Angel de Gregoria of Finca Allende said, “Rioja is a Burgundy style wine with a Bordeaux history.” You may drink and enjoy Rioja, but do you really know Rioja?

As I get closer to taking the WSET Level 3 exam on February 26 I am dedicating more time to studying than writing. Next week I will have a couple of fun Valentine’s Day articles, one featuring a world of bubbles; the other focused on French wines for #Winophiles. The following week I will publish one article. Thank you for your patience and loyalty. The first week of March I will be back to my regular publishing schedule with lots of wonderful wines to share with you.
