PDF version of the IWS manual would be very nice so we can carry it around on our iPad.

Italian Wine Scholar 2 Program
Any serious professional and/or collector should consider pursuing this deep dive into Italian wines. The materials are clear, concise, and well presented. Students that put in the effort will be rewarded with a broad overview of the classic Italian regions, as well as small/overlooked areas. Further, a big picture appreciation for the history, geography, and soils of the Italian peninsula will translate into a deeper understanding of wine in general. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically endorse this program. Thank you for creating this dynamic and fun learning experience!

The Italian Wine Scholar program offers a comprehensive deep-dive into one of the most complex and fascinating wine regions of the world. I took Unit 1 before the instructor-led program was available (self-study), and I can say now that Unit 2 was much more interesting and helpful with an instructor and learning community. I highly recommend the instructor-led IWS program for anyone who loves wine, Italy, and lifelong learning — whether you are an industry professional or a wine enthusiast. Kathy Merchant, IWS

The Italian Wine Scholar program is an outstanding educational experience that provided both depth and breadth of instruction on all of Italy's wine regions. I highly recommend this course to wine industry professionals and to enthusiasts who want to understand and appreciate well-known Italian wines as well as hidden treasures.

An excellent, and very detailed, insight into the wines of Italy, and ideal for anyone with a good basic understanding of wine who wants to know more about the wines of this fascinating country. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course to any serious student of wine, or to sign up for one of the other courses myself.
