    The Italian Wine Scholar program has really helped me discover Italy as a wine-producing country. It was a wonderful journey to progress step by step through the 20 regions.

    Other certifications: CSW (Society of Wine Educators), WSET Level 3, French Wine Scholar, Spanish Wine Scholar, Champagne Master Level

    Congratulations to István Tábor, IWS, for passing the Italian Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About István

    I have been a wine professional for some years now and am the owner and general manager of a wine-based ‘portfolio’ in Hungary.  This includes two online wine magazines, a WSET APP wine school, an online wine shop and numerous regular wine tasting events. My main aim is to improve my everyday performance in the wine business.

    I am currently devoting a lot of time to my wine studies. I have already passed the WSG Champagne master, French Wine Scholar and Spanish Wine Scholar programs. I have also passed the American Wine Expert (AWE) exam at the Napa Valley Academy and Certified Specialist of Wine at the Society of Wine Educators. In addition, I am studying for the WSET Diploma at their London Wine School and for the Online Certificate in Wine Business Management at the Sonoma State University. Besides my wine qualifications, I have a masters in economic sciences, faculty of finance and accounting, and an MSc in Law.

    The Italian Wine Scholar program has really helped me discover Italy as a wine-producing country. Italy has a long history and numerous indigenous grape varieties, the majority of which are directly linked to one administrative region or province. It was a wonderful journey to progress step by step through the 20 regions and their tremendous DOCs, DOCGs and IGTs.  Now I have the trifecta (French, Spanish and Italian Wine Scholar) certification, I am much more confident in progressing with my wine studies.  Now it is time to complete all the WSG Master level programs!
