From the Regulatory Council of DOCa Rioja we make this platform available to professionals and wine lovers in order to bring our wines to the last corner of the world. We believe that training is a fundamental tool in the wine industry. Through our courses we want to contribute to the excellence of professionals and satisfy the curiosity and desire to know of all those who approach Rioja wines. We trust that Rioja Wine Academy opens a window to our land, and to the people who care for our vineyards and make our wines.
Our goal is to train professionals who are passionate about our diversity, our way of making wines, our land and our flavors and, in turn, spread others of this enthusiasm through our training programs.
