Designed for wine aficionados looking to take their wine knowledge and tasting skills to the next level, Wineology, blends the immersive wine education of our Intensive Sommelier Training program, without the ‘intensity’ of training as a Certified Sommelier. With lessons, tastings, and instruction developed from our career program and taught by Master Sommeliers, ICC offers the most in-depth wine training available to the amateur, but passionate wine lover.
Module 2: Wines of Italy
For a country whose nationhood dates back only to the 1860s, Italy has come a long way in bringing order to their ancient legacy of wine-growing. To the wine student, it can be a daunting expedition into their 20 wine regions. In this 5-day evening course, you’ll taste 40 wines ranging from the historical, commercially-important hillsides – Piemonte, Toscana, the Veneto and more – to the underappreciated terroirs where opportunity awaits.
*Each module begins with a class that covers basic viniculture, viticulture and deductive tasting. If an enrollee has already taken this class, they can be reimbursed for the tools and Wine Atlas distributed on this day.
