It covers all the essential elements, from history to culture to wine styles and recent developments. A must-do for every serious wine lover, NOT just every serious Spanish wine lover!

    "The SWS is a great program. It helped me expand my knowledge and showed a lot of new things. I never though there was so much history and diversity to Spanish Wine. I'm now eager to visit Spain and see all these regions I read about."

    "I have now studied both the French and Spanish Wine Scholar programmes. I didn’t know how much I didn’t know before taking them. Both were as pleasurable as they were informative. I’ve now signed up for Italy!"

    "Its an amazing course, suitable for everyone who wants to study further and really understand the whole picture of Spanish wine culture and industry. Enjoyable, funny, and stunning. Keeps me thirsty for Spanish wine, and knowledge!"
  • Mario Roma

    "A fabulous journey through Spain vineyards and history what's a real privilege. SWS brought me the smells and flavours of the same wines which a thirsty Don Quijote has drunk celebrating his victories besides Sancho; the deep ruby that hipnotyzed Pablo Picasso or Salvador Dalí; the life and death of vines as centuries of war and conquest pass by. Finally, a lovely kind of no wayback intimacy with the next glass. Thank you for all."

    "The Spanish Wine Scholar program encourages students to not only learn about Spanish wines but relish the experience of tasting them. It leaves students wanting to sample more Spanish wines and travel to the areas where they are produced. Students who complete this course gain a fantastic appreciation for Spanish wines, culture, history and many individual communities and regions. "

    "A detailed explanation of Wines from Spain, with very interesting points of history and wine cultures. "
  • Ying Ying Chen
    on Aug 24, 2022
    "Before SWS, I didn't know there are so many interesting wines and cultural high lights in Spain. Makes me want to visit Spain again. I did an online program, and didn't find all the wines mentioned in the program, but I'll keep referring to it and will expand my wine tasting experience as I go."
  • Graham Walter SWS

    "The SWS program had everything I was looking for. The content, structure, and practical approach were all fantastic and it was presented in an easy to understand and logical way. Outside of the world of wine, I am a practicing physician with a schedule that made the online independent study format perfect. I would highly recommend this course to anyone with a general interest in wine or an interest in Spain in particular. Hopefully, Spanish master classes are coming to the scholar guild soon!"
