Chief Taster and owner of West London Wine School, South London Wine School and Streatham Wine House, Jimmy Smith, takes you through La Rioja DOCa for WSET Level 3. Here you will learn how the three subzones produce premium wine mainly from Tempranillo with unique geographical and climatic factors and how they affect the final styles.

At the end of the video there is a working example of a written question so you can understand what to expect if a Rioja question is to arise, and how to correctly answer it.
