Spanish Wine Seminar: June 15-17, 2007
"Spain is the most exciting wine country in the world at the moment.
Quality has improved enormously and there is an exciting array of styles.
No longer is Spain the land of swilling sherry, coarse cava and rough reds."
Ken Gargett, Courrier-Mail November, 2006
