IWS Prep with Italian Wine Scholar Anne Arnold is your passport to understanding Italian wine.

For the Italian wine lover! The coursebook and instructor will guide you on a wine-focused journey through Italy, learning about legendary wines, foods, landmarks and cultural attractions as you “travel.” The program has been divided into three sections, each featuring a geographical area of Italy: the wines of Northern Italy, the wines of Central Italy and the wines of Southern Italy. Within each section, a tantalizing palette of wines are showcased.

The course provides an introduction to Italy, explores its key wine regions and delivers core information on 39 of the country's need-to-know wines. Included in the course are samples from each region and cheese/charcuterie boards.

The course runs 4 consecutive Wednesdays from 6-8pm:

Oct 4 - Northen Italy

Oct 11 - Central Italy

Oct 18 - Southern Italy

Nov 1- Review and optional exam

IWS Prep is designed to address the needs of the inquisitive wine enthusiast and aspiring wine professional alike. As a foundation course, IWS Prep remains accessible but is content-rich and full of cultural highlights that are as engaging as they are entertaining.

IWS Prep is also acts as a stepping-stone to the internationally acclaimed Italian Wine Scholar certification program.
