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 traveled throughout Spain and delved into countless books to bring you this insider’s guide to great Spanish Wines.

Attending this Wine Class as an Online Student?

This class is offered as an in-person class (Premium and Discount Tickets) or a virtual wine tasting (Online Tickets). We recommend picking up wines via wine.com or wine-searcher.com. The wine list is included on this page.

You don’t need to have the exact wines on the list. It’s unlikely you will be able to find all the wines we use: we have a vast wine cellar, and many of the wines we taste in class are unavailable via retail channels. Instead, we recommend focusing on the varietals and regions we are using, not the vintage or producer. Please note that we cannot ship or sell wines. If you need assistance in purchasing wines, we offer a paid sommelier consulting service.
