    The IWS program and the 2018 IWS Educator trip to Trentino, Franciacorta and Lugana have hugely improved my knowledge of Italian wine and reignited my passion for Italian wine.
    Jonny Gibson, IWS, Owner, Sussex Wine School and Kent Wine School
    Other certifications: WSET Diploma, French Wine Scholar with highest honors

    Congratulations to Jonny Gibson, IWS, for passing the Italian Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Jonny:

    I am a wine educator with a 30 year career in drinks marketing, wine buying and wine education. I have been running two wine schools for the past seven years in the UK - Sussex Wine School and Kent Wine School. My particular wine passions are the mountain wines of northern Italy, south west France and Provence. You never stop learning in wine and I am currently studying for the Spanish Wine Scholar exam.

    I passed my WSET Diploma in 2001 and teach WSET up to Level 3 at both wine schools. We also teach both the WSG French and Italian Wine Scholar courses. These courses give our students something very special to move onto after WSET Level 3 and I personally enjoy teaching them very much. The mix of history, geography, culture and the extensive wine detail are ideal for delivering an engaging class and course.

    The IWS program and the 2018 IWS Educator trip to Trentino, Franciacorta and Lugana have hugely improved my knowledge of Italian wine and reignited my passion for Italian wine. We have increased the number of Italian wine tastings and events held at both wine schools significantly in the last year.
