Basic wine course ‘Viva Vino’

After only five weeks, you’ll be able to talk and taste like a professional! During the beginners course ‘Viva Vino’ you will get answers to the most common wine questions. In five sessions you will get to know the world’s most important wine regions and the accompanying grapes. You will be introduced to the basic principles of wine making and to important details on different wine labels. A must-do for anyone who wants to develop their taste buds!


A garden dinner party with friends, a sultry summer night for two, with a book at the fireplace… Whatever you have planned, there is a different wine for every occasion. But… how do you know which wine to choose? Which flavors can and/or may you expect in a specific wine? What does the region of origin on the label tell us? And what does the word terroir actually mean?

‘Viva Vino’ offers an introduction to the beautiful world of wine. In five evening sessions you’ll be taken on a tour through the world’s excellent and most important wine regions, emphasizing their main grape varieties and growing conditions.

The primary aim is to help you understand wine, to learn and to appreciate it and to give you the confidence to choose the wines you’ll enjoy.
