The 2019/2020 Spanish Wines Training Plan focuses on the training of professionals and future Belgian wine professionals and consists on the realization of various masterclasses and tastings carried out by expert trainers, as well as a roadshow at the main sommelier schools in the country. 10 Spanish wineries have been selected to represent Spanish variety and quality.
The different classes and tastings will be developed in Dutch and will take place in 3 different sessions in Brussels, Ghent and Antwerp. The sessions are conducted by Masters of Wine (like Frank Smulders, one of the most renowned MW in Europe) and other wine specialist trainers.
The plan has started October 7, with the celebration of the first masterclass. The session, that was attended by various experts from the Belginan wine sector, took place in Ghent and was the first of the three formations of the program.
