Please join us in applauding our very first Italian Wine Scholar, Nancy Reynolds, FWS, IWS.
Instructor of the French Wine Scholar and Italian Wine Scholar programs at IWEG in Toronto, Nancy just passed her Unit 2 exam, attaining a composite score of 97.5% on Unit 1 and Unit 2 exams. She passes with highest honors!
"The Italian Wine Scholar course is a comprehensive study of the world of Italian wine.
It gives context to the discipline by including the history of the country and its winegrowing areas as well as their cultural settings. Each module answers the question of why these wines taste like they do.
It is a challenging and very enjoyable program." Nancy Reynolds, FWS, IWS
