International Grape Varieties is a series of five online and interactive masterclasses on wines from all over the world.
To be conducted in English, the course is designed for beginners and wine lovers and perfectly meets the challenges of the new post-COVID normality. Each series will examine a particular grape variety and its profile in an international selection of wines.
Wines tasted during the course will be provided by the Italian Wine Academy and get sent to participants directly. Wine lovers will receive the wines in advance, together with instructions on how to best store the bottles
Tastings will be held via Zoom by Rebecca Lawrence DipWSET. She came to the Italian Wine Academy directly from the WSET London School, Rebecca is an English native speaker, Wine Educator, Education Development Consultant, Italian Wine Specialist and wine writer. Fond of the world of wine and podcasting, Rebecca shares her experience in the world of wine on the Inclusion-Diversity series of the Italian Wine Podcast.
“The great thing about a masterclass is that it gives us time to really focus on why these grape varieties are so beloved around the world and to explore how differently they can express themselves” - said Lawrence - “By focusing on a single grape at a time, participants not only really get to know their key territories and styles but to compare them in detail. All from the comfort of their own home!”
