Program Overview

Join us for a Maymester you will not forget as we travel across the wine regions of Spain to learn the grape varieties, wine styles, and production methods used in different regions from the vineyard to the bottle. Along the way we have rich cultural experiences including a visit to Vivanco winery which offers wine and food experiences in Rioja, as well as the outstanding Museum of Wine Culture.

Students will visit top producers in five different wine regions of Spain, touring their vineyards and wineries while exploring the food and culture of each region. In Seville, students will stay with a host family, giving them unique insights to the day-to-day life in Andalucia.
