It is an excellent foundation for anyone in the industry,” said winemaker Peter Luthi. “Spanish for the Wine Industry provided the basic language and technical terms I needed to start communicating effectively with my Spanish-speaking crew.

"Spanish for the Wine Industry" is the answer to the busy wine industry employee seeking to increase performance effectiveness by speaking Spanish on the job. From the first lesson, this groundbreaking book introduces the specific Spanish vocabulary, phrases and grammar needed to communicate in the vineyard, the winery and the human resources department.

Adriance published the first edition in 2003 after 15 years of teaching Spanish for business and searching for the right books for her clients in the wine industry.

“Because there were so few materials available that provided the specific vocabulary of the wine industry, my book was designed to help those who need to communicate in Spanish in vineyards, wineries and in human resources offices,” Adriance said.

After the first edition sold out, Adriance updated and expanded the first one and added an English-Spanish CD.

The book, which can be used in classes or for self-guided study, begins with the basics that a person may practice daily, such as “I don’t understand” and “ Are you Ready?”

Subsequent lessons focus on the vineyard, the winery and the human resources office, teaching sentences like “Make sure there are no leaks in the pipes,” “We will start bottling on Monday morning,” and “Please fill out this application.”

It also provides an English-Spanish glossary along with exercises.

“It is an excellent foundation for anyone in the industry,” said winemaker Peter Luthi. “Spanish for the Wine Industry provided the basic language and technical terms I needed to start communicating effectively with my Spanish-speaking crew.”

Adriance, a native of Madrid, Spain, moved to the Napa Valley in 1985 and founded Spanish for Business in 1992 to provide translation, interpretation and classes with an emphasis on communicating in the wine and hospitality industries.

She is also the author of the English-Spanish Dictionary for the Wine Industry, English for the Wine Industry (Inglés para la Industria Vitivinicola) and Spanish for the Hospitality Industry.
