The Italian Wine Specialist™ is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the wines of Italy. It surveys the wine-producing regions from Aosta Valley to Sicily. The wine course identifies essential styles, wine producers, and Northern and Central Italy vintages. Extensive reference materials—for growing zones, grape varieties, and top producers— provide essential information for winemakers, restaurateurs, and sommeliers, as well as wine enthusiasts.
Italy is one of the most diverse wine countries in the world of wine; it offers alpine landscapes, volcanic terroir, endless microclimates, and prehistoric winemaking culture that was impacted by the Greeks, Phoenicians, and Romans. Plus, hundreds of indigenous and nativized grape varieties are grown across Italy. In this program, you will get to experience many of them.
Comprehensive and engaging, this wine course. It is the perfect semester for anyone who wants to know more about the vast viticultural treasures cultivated within Italy.
A list of wines to purchase will be sent to you in November. These will be the same (or very similar) as the wines tasted in class.
