Italian Wine Scholar Prep Course
Wine Scholar Guild proudly announces the newest addition to its growing list of specialized wine courses: the Italian Wine Scholar Prep course (IWS Prep). IWS Prep is designed to address the needs of the inquisitive wine enthusiast and aspiring wine professional alike. IWS Prep remains accessible but is content-rich and full of cultural highlights that are as engaging as they are entertaining.
The course provides an introduction to Italy, explores its key wine regions and delivers core information on 39 of the country's need-to-know wines.
IWS Prep is your passport to understanding Italian wine. It also acts as a stepping-stone to the internationally acclaimed Italian Wine Scholar certification program.
The coursebook and instructors alike will guide you on a wine-focused journey through Italy, learning about legendary wines, foods, landmarks and cultural attractions as you “travel.” The program has been divided into three sections, each featuring a geographical area of Italy: the wines of Northern Italy, the wines of Central Italy and the wines of Southern Italy. Within each section, a tantalizing palette of wines are showcased.
Classes begin January 4th- January 25th, 2021 at 6-9pm, and will be taught both online and in-person. The exam will be held on February 1st. (Strict COVID guidelines will be followed for all in-person classes.)
