Wineserver is the official instructor of the Spanish Wine Scholar course in Finland. Spain is a fascinating wine country and certainly offers something for every wine lover. The Spanish Wine Scholar course book covers the geography and history of Spain as a whole, as well as the history and culture of each wine region. Spain has a long history of winemaking and today produces very different types of wine – the fresh, acidic and mineral white wines of Galicia, the often slightly tangy Txacoli of the Basque Country, the full-bodied Ribeira del Duero, Sherry, Cava, Moscatel, etc. Not forgetting the traditional Rioja, which has also undergone many changes as a wine region in recent years.
