Wines of Spain, Portugal & Greece

GEMS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN: Discover the diversity of grape varieties and wine styles a Mediterranean climate provides and how tradition and innovation thrive side by side.



Sunshine, warm breezes, olive oil, wine and the Mediterranean Sea tie Portugal, Spain, Greece and several other countries together. Learn the similarities and differences of some of the oldest wine regions of the world and some of the trendsetting new wines as well. We'll explore Cava, Rioja, Priorat, Ribera del Duero, Rías Baixas, Jerez, Vinho Verde, Douro, Porto, Madeira and more. 

This workshop is part of our Certified Specialist of Wine program, but can be taken à la carte. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the full series if you would like to continue on. Those who would like to attend workshops online and forgo the wine tastings can apply SKIPTHEWINE at checkout to many online workshops for 40% off. SEE ALL WEBONLY WORKSHOPS

Hybrid - Room/Zoom

We've recently invested in some serious AV technology upgrades to create an integrated Hybrid Room/Zoom experience for all students, so each individual can choose to participate in-person as a "Roomer" with wine in their glass or online as a "Zoomer" with a custom tasting kit.  Both Roomers and Zoomers have the same wines and are able to engage with us and each other during these live classes. Recordings are also available within 1 business day after the class.  Learn more...
