The Advanced Northern Italy Wine Program is part of the NWS Diploma Program. This program is a semester-long study into the wine and culture of Italy, with a focus on Northern and Central Italy.
The Advanced Northern Italy Wine Program is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the wines of Northern Italy. It surveys the wine-producing regions from Aosta Valley to the Veneto; the course identifies essential styles, wine producers, and vintages of Northern and Central Italy. Extensive reference materials—for growing zones, grape varieties, and top producers— provide essential information for winemakers, restaurateurs and sommeliers, as well as for wine enthusiasts*.
Northern Italy is one the most diverse wine regions in the world of wine; it offers alpine landscapes, volcanic terroir, endless microclimates, and a prehistoric winemaking culture that was impacted by Greeks, Phoenicians, and Romans. Plus, hundreds of indigenous and nativized grape varieties are grown in Northern Italy. In this program, you will get to experience many of them.
Comprehensive and engaging, this wine course is taught by Keith Wallace. It is the perfect semester for anyone who wants to know more about the vast viticultural treasures cultivated in Northern Italy.
