It has now become an SIU Madrid tradition to welcome the fall semester with our Wine Trip. As a university, we want to see students develop their skills outside the class and see them immerse in the Spanish culture.
It is for that reason that our Undergraduate Advisor, Professor José Pinto, prepared a trip all of us will remember. This time we went to “Finca la Estacada” a vineyard where all SIU family, students and professors, had the opportunity to learn more about how wine is made and the excellence they use in the process.
While we were there we also had the opportunity to have our “Wine Trip Games” a series of competitions between groups of students and professors. So, we all got ready for the challenges and created some wonderful memories of a time well spent.
In the end we all enjoyed a good meal in honor of a Spanish tradition to never leave a place with an empty stomach. We can already assure you we will come back again next year!!
