VIA VERONA – Agile Edition 2022


The VIA Certification Course is exceptionally well developed; the instructors have designed the course to give students the confidence to become adept Ambassadors of Italian wine.We have adapted to the ongoing pandemic restrictions and now use an innovative hybridformat to guarantee the students the best study results, enabling successful Ambassadors to build a long-term career in the wine sector.

Course format

There is a focus on the native grapes of Italy; moving through Italy region by region, students will get an in-depth experience, learning about wine in combination with food and Italian culture.

Online Theory:

    • The online sessions will be on our digital learning platform where students can watch and follow recorded video lessons created by our faculty.
    • The sessions include lectures on each of the 20 wine regions in Italy, as well as warm-up sessions and a special seminar on VIA systematic tasing.

In-person practical session:

    • The “in-person” sessions will take place in Verona from 4th to 7th April 2022.
    • These sessions are divided between practical lessons, focused on wine tastings of selected wines and Q&A sessions with the Faculty.
    • All the students are invited to join the 11th edition of Operawine (9th April)

On the last day of the in-person session, students will sit the final exam. 

    • 100 multiple choice questions;
    • 2 short answer questions;
    • Blind tasting of 2 wines;
    • Students are also required to submit a group video project in advance as part of the examination.
