This Wednesday, July 27th at 7:00 pm central time, we are pleased to offer a new SWEbinar entitled “Meet the Wines of Rioja”! This session will be presented by Sam Schmitt, CS, CSS, CWE.
Here’s how Sam describes this session: The wines of Rioja are among the most famous in the world – and there is so much to know! Join us for this one-hour session and meet the diverse wines of the Rioja DOCa. We will get to know the reds and the whites, the tradtionals and the moderns, the jovens and the very, very olds. Rioja has them all!
SWE’s SWEbinar series is unique in that it is offered free-of-charge, and open to the public! We also try to accommodate all schedules by offering sessions on weekdays and weekends, as well as daytime and evening hours. Sessions last for about one hour, and are live, interactive events. If you have a topic you would like to see addressed, or a time-of-day that would work for you, please let our Director of Education, Jane A. Nickles know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
