The “Old” Planeta Vino

The “Old Planeta Vino”  was a dynamic wine school and wine events company with a somewhat archaic website!  Now I’m based in Miami, have a great new website and am relaunching the Planeta Vino events company.

The “Old Planeta Vino was a beautiful  seven years teaching wine classes and organizing wine and food events for every kind of group imaginable in Madrid!

  • Corporate groups were the bread and butter of our business and offered challenging opportunities for creating event planning.  Smaller groups loved our team building “wine games” while with larger groups we often planned wine and gourmet food tables to allow for a greater interactive experience.
  • Wine enthusiasts were some of our best clients.  Dedicated in their passion for wine, they wanted a detailed overview of Spanish wines before heading out to their wine region of choice.
  • Gourmet Spain was never far from our events and we frequently included cheese and olive oil tastings in our events.  Gourmet wine matching dinners at top Madrid restaurants were another real favorite with clients.
  • Some of my favorite and most challenging courses were for local groups, sometimes stretching over several years, as we delved deep into Spanish wines and then into the rest of Europe and further afield to the new world.
  • With some special groups, we led some winery visits to wineries close to Madrid as well as to the better known wine areas of La Mancha, Toro, and Ribera del Duero
