The Italian Wine Scholar™ education program is the most advanced, comprehensive, and up-to-date Italian wine course available. The syllabus takes a regional approach and discusses all Italian wine appellations and the factors that shape their identities.

The Italian Wine Scholar program is composed of two separate units:

  • Unit 1: Northern Italy
  • Unit 2: Central & Southern Italy

Unit 1 & 2 can be taken in any order


The program includes all the necessary tools & support to fully understand the wines of Italy:

Our sessions will include 15 hours of classroom instruction plus a review session and exam day, with tutored tasting taught by approved instructor, Jo-Ann Ross, DipWSET, IWS, FWS:

  • The 218-page full-color Italian Wine Scholar Unit 2 study manual
  • 1-year access to the Italian Wine Scholar Unit 2 online study program for class preparation and review
  • Registration for the Italian Wine Scholar Unit 2 Exam

In order to bring each region to life, you will also taste a total of many different wines over the course of the program.

Tastings are provided as part of the in person class, and Tasting Kits are provided for those who choose the Online with Tasting Kit option. A list of suggested wines will be provided for students who choose to join from home without kits, prior to class so that you can taste along. The exam must be taken in person at Commonwealth Wine School and is scheduled for November 3rd, 2021.

The course is offered both in-person or virtually-you choose what works best for you!
