Master the wines of Central & Southern Italy through 10 weeks of self-study fully supported by a comprehensive study manual, interactive e-learning modules for each region, and 9 live review webinars.


The Italian Wine Scholar™ Unit 2 curriculum via online learning offers an interactive program that is put into a measurable, meaningful format designed for maximum retention of content and ease of use.


Students who pass the exam for Unit 1 and Unit 2 will earn the Italian Wine Scholar™ (IWS) post-nominal.


The program is designed to keep you on track…but it is also flexible enough to enable you to catch up should your schedule get interrupted…or even to suspend it should you get derailed. It is designed to accommodate the needs of a busy professional.


The Italian Wine Scholar™ education program is the most advanced, comprehensive, and up-to-date Italian wine course available. The syllabus takes a regional approach and discusses all italian wine appellations and the factors that shape their identities.


The program provides committed students of wine with an unparalleled set of study tools that are designed to maximize learning and boost knowledge retention. Ciro and Andrea are available for questions via chat box during webinars, via the Q&A forum and via direct email/phone. There is also a student forum should you wish to create a study group/tasting group in your area or just interact with your fellow students. You can be as interactive or as independent as you want to be.
