    "Drying: Once the staves have been cut, they are left to dry in the fresh air during approximately two months to reduce the moisture content and coarseness of the wood. This process seasons the wood, softening its aromas and reducing the moisture content to around 12 -15%." Must be a mistake. As I know, seasoning takes at least 2-3 years, no months!

    The description (colour, aromas, tasting notes, food pairings) and technical data for Moscatel and Dulces are the same slides. Is that correct? Could someone look into that?

    Great course, learned a lot and enjoyed a glass or two as I progressed. Like many others, I was floored by the test in section 9 - daft answers and not the ones the learning leads you too. I ony eventually passed by working my way through all the possible combinations of answers. Tedious, but I wasn't going to be beaten at the last !

    The Spanish term for a small tasting glass for wine in general is: COPITA; The typical small sherry glass with tulip-shaped goblet is called CATAVINO; The special glass for the sherry type Manzanilla is called Caña! The word means bamboo and is probably derived from the special Venencia (scoop cup) used here, whose stem is made of this wood (instead of whalebone or silver as in Jerez). It is possible that the term refers to the tavern custom "cantar a las cañas (de vino)", which means "singing to the wine glasses". The Caña is also a Spanish song form (Palo) of flamenco.....
