The Spanish for the Wine Industry Program is specifically designed for those interested in learning Spanish or English using terminology, phrases and situations related to the wine business.
The goal is effective communication with Spanish speaking workers in the vineyard and winery, as well as, enhancing the Spanish-speaking skills of human resources personnel and those interested in wine tourism. We offer Spanish classes on-site in Napa County and at our premises in Napa. Also, explore our online classes for college credit through VESTA from Missouri State University – an excellent option to learn remotely.
The Spanish for the Wine Industry program was designed in 2003 by Josefina K Adriance, a native of Madrid, Spain, with over twenty-five years of experience teaching Spanish. Excel in your Spanish and English language skills by participating in one or several components of the program.
“In a profession such as winemaker there are a multitude of technical terms,” said Peter Luthi a Napa Valley winemaker who has taken Adriance’s classes. “Finding the proper translation is not easy. Adriance’s Spanish classes, books and dictionary specifically developed for the wine industry, provide an invaluable resource for anybody involved in viticulture or enology where Spanish is used.”
