Students will obtain an in depth, solid understanding of the diversity of Spanish wine.

This professional course comprehensively delves into the past, present and future of Spanish wine. The history, culture, climate, regionality, grape varieties, viticulture, viniculture, wine laws and current trends and styles are examined and reinforced with a dynamic and disciplined tasting component that accompanies each session.
