Designed for wine aficionados looking to take their wine knowledge and tasting skills to the next level, Wineology, blends the immersive wine education of our Intensive Sommelier Training program, without the ‘intensity’ of training as a Certified Sommelier. With lessons, tastings, and instruction developed from our career program and taught by Master Sommeliers, ICC offers the most in-depth wine training available to the amateur, but passionate wine lover.

Module 5: Wines of the Iberian Peninsula 

For two countries that both joined the European Union in 1986, the global wine approaches of Spain and Portugal couldn’t have been more different. Study these business strategies – and taste 48 fantastic wines – as we travel through the historic regions of Rioja, Ribera del Duero and more. The layers of complexity build as more recently successful regions enter the consciousness of today’s consumer including Priorato, Galicia, Rueda and more.

*Each module begins with a class that covers basic viniculture, viticulture and deductive tasting.  If an enrollee has already taken this class, they can be reimbursed for the tools and Wine Atlas distributed on this day.
