Modeled after the internationally acclaimed French Wine Scholar program, Italian Wine Scholar students will receive the same deliverables which we have been perfecting for the last seven years.
The Italian Wine Scholar™ curriculum is an Italian wine education program designed to provide committed students of wine with the most advanced and comprehensive specialization study program on Italian wine bar none! It was created by native Italian, Maurizio Brioggi, DWS, FWS with the support of the Italian wine DOC/G consortia.
The Italian Wine Scholar™ education program mirrors the unparalleled level of depth, accuracy, detail and academic rigor offered by the acclaimed French Wine Scholar™ program.
Like the French Wine Scholar program, the Italian Wine Scholar study and certification program also confers a post-nominal to wine professionals and enthusiasts who successfully pass the certification exams (Ex: John Smith, IWS).
The Italian Wine Scholar study program is composed of two separate units:
The exam for each unit is composed of 100 multiple-choice questions. Candidates need a composite score of 75% to receive the credential, i.e. the scores from both exams are added together and averaged for final assessment.
Registration for Unit 1 is now open for a May 31st launch!
The Italian Wine Scholar™ program will soon be offered by the Wine Scholar Guild's Program Provider network.
