Italian Wine Scholar : Unit 1

  • Vessel Liquor 1609 Fort Street Victoria, BC, V8R 1H8 Canada (map)

Cru Consultancy is proud to bring this exciting new program to Western Canada.

The Italian Wine Scholar is offered in conjunction with the Wine Scholar Guild and due to the depth and complexity of Italian wines, the program has been split into two courses: Unit 1 and Unit 2. This course is only Unit 1, which covers Northern Italy. Unit 2 covers Central and Southern Italy and will be offered in 2018.
This is an advanced program of study on a par with the detail required for the WSET Diploma for Italy and beyond what is covered in WSET level 3. The examination for each Unit will be a 100 question MC test with a 75 mark passing score. Candidates must pass both Unit 1 and Unit 2 in order to earn the title Italian Wine Scholar.
