Finnish Sommelier Association proudly presents:

Wine Symposium: Spanish Wine Revolution!


The symposium is a two-day meeting point for industry professionals, bringing people together to discuss, learn and be challenged. This symposium focuses on the dynamics and changes currently occurring in the Spanish wine scene. The guest speakers from various Spanish wineries will discuss issues such as autochthonous grape varieties, the relationship between winemaking and terroir, and the relevance of wine legislation. The attendees also have an opportunity to taste interesting Spanish wines currently represented in the Finnish market.

This Wine Symposium is the fourth symposium organised by the Finnish Sommelier Association, with previous guest speakers including e.g. Jamie Goode, Véronique Rivest, Sören Polonius, Laura Rhys MS and Nigel Wilkinson MS.
