Vinitaly International Academy
After the 6th Certification Courses abroad, Vinitaly International Academy will get back to its original home, for its 11th edition to be held from 29 March to 2 April 2019. Five days of in-depth lessons entirely focused on Italian wine with a final exam to become VIA certified Ambassadors or Experts.
This edition of certification course will also inaugurate the famous “Vinitaly Marathon” which is highlighted by the 5StarWines – the Book from 3 to 5 April 2019 and the Operawine on the 6th of April. From April 7th to the 10th, the 53rd edition of Vinitaly will take place, hosting again wine producers from all over Italy.
The VIA Certification Course represents a unique opportunity for wine professionals all over the world to gain extensive knowledge from the leading Italian Wine Experts on the subject of Italian grape varieties and wines. The course does not just offer hours of in-depth classroom teaching but also the opportunity to taste authentic archetypal wines not easily found even in Italy.
In this manner, our students have the opportunity to really understand and learn the differences between each variety and wine, as well as gaining confidence to talk about what each wine should really smell and taste like to a broader audience.
