I would recommend the course highly for those not only interested in Wine but also Italy in general, as it covers all aspects of viticulture but also history, politics, law relating to wine and geography. A very entertaining course.

Italian Wine Scholar is another excellent course by Wine Scholar Guild. As with French Wine Scholar, IWS program is well-designed to provide learners with all the need-to-know information in concisely written study guides. The on-line learning materials of individual wine regions including the maps, flashcards, quizzes supplement and benefit the learning experience. IWS makes learning Italian wines fun and enjoyable!

IWS unit 1 is a well thought out program that illustrates the different regions and grape varietals as well as some background Italian history and culture. Even though I have done WSET diploma, this course furthered my understanding and I will definitely be taking unit 2.
