Spanish Wine

Learn About Spanish Wine

Spain: It’s hands down the most exciting wine region in the world today. In this class, we serve up a full panoply of dazzling reds and whites from premier regions like Rioja, to the less-familiar — but no less stellar — such as Priorat and Rias Baixas.  Our instructors are Spanish wine enthusiasts, bar none. Come to class and join the congregation of the converted.

This class is an homage to the winemaking and culture of Spain. The senior staff of the Wine School has travelled throughout Spain and delved into countless books to bring you this insider’s guide to great Spanish Wines.
