The prestigious Forbes magazine has published an article on its website about the 5 tools for free training on wine among which is the Rioja Wine Academy.
The article highlights two general courses, a course on Burgundy wines, a MOOC on champagne and the platform we developed for the Regulatory Council of the Rioja Designation of Origin.
This is the excerpt from the article written by Jill Barth that talks about Rioja Wine Academy:
Rioja Wine Academy.
Wines from Rioja presents the Rioja Wine Academy, an online, bilingual educational platform with four courses, each featuring a final exam. Pass the assessment and earn a diploma. All resources are free and digital, including a recommended wines list that allows the user to shop by specific characteristics, rather than a prescriptive bottle menu. According to the program, “anyone can become a Rioja wine expert in only 15 hours – all from the comfort of the couch!” Wines from Rioja invites users to provide feedback within the platform and this is scattered with positive notes that seem to indicate a high-quality experience.
