Spanish & Wine Culture
This module allows observing the complexity of nineteenth century's enological terminology, characterized by the ability to blend traditional and new terms, whether they originate in enology or other sciences, especially chemistry. From the Fundación para la Difusión de la Lengua y Cultura Española, the course specialized on enology, and, in addition, the visits to top Castilian-Leonese appellation of origin wineries, make this course a reference in national learning not only of Spanish language but also of their enological culture.
Wine in Spain is not only a part of its culture and history, but also of ancient traditions spreading all over the Iberian Peninsula. Grapevines are undoubtedly one of the most characteristic landscapes of our geography, and with a good reason, since it has the longest extension of vineyards in the world.
From North to South and from East to West, vineyards and centuries-old vineries spangle a world worth to be discovered which is inherent to good food and to our history, a world joining grape, to earth and mankind.
We offer a wide range of accommodations suitable to the budget of each group. All hotels we work with have been visited in the past 12 months and we have been offered the quality guarantees demanded in our programs. They are three and four stars hotels, located in the downtown, or attractive cottages in the most remote places.
The duration is from eight to twelve days, during which we develop the highest quality enological program visiting the appellations of origin for each zone. Visits to cooperages and companies related to the wine industry make up a unique program for those who are studying the matter or those who simply enjoy learning about grapes and wine
NOTES: This program is complemented by wine tasting, gastronomic and cultural activities. Each trip is designed in accordance with the preferences for each group or school in order to meet the highest expectations and training needs of the customer. The group or school can choose the route and to visit the appellations of origin of their interests within the Iberian Peninsula. A wide range of tours, activities, meals and lodging is offered covered by the group's budget.
