Clueless about the carta de vinos? Bewildered at the bar? Do you know your chardonnay from your Chablis? Or are you a budding Somm-star? Whether you’re looking to impress clients, decode the wine list or just want to taste some great wines and meet new people, we’ve got a tasting that’s right for you…

Wine Courses Barcelona runs fun, informal and educational tasting courses, focusing on a different wine region or country each month. Sessions will cover viticulture, winemaking techniques, key styles, trends and producers. The wines have been chosen with quality in mind and are the benchmark products for each category and region. We will explore the differing terroirs and stylistic diversities of the region, what makes those differences, and discover the stories of those behind the wines.

Ideal for all wine lovers: novices, professionals and aficionados.

Tastings are led by a certified educator and take place over 3 consecutive Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday nights (see individual events for more details). Only fancy coming to 1 or 2? No problem! Just book for your chosen dates. Those attending all 3 evenings will receive a Certificate of Completion for that month’s region.

Places are limited and offered on a first-come-first-served basis. So what are you waiting for? Join today!
