Why Choose Accademiavino
AccademiaVino is the only wine school in Italy whose course design and delivery activities operate under a Certified Quality System according to the demanding ISO 9001 norm.
In order to grant this quality certification, an accredited independent body must audit all aspects of an organization's workflow, with a special focus on three key points:
- Strict verification and validation of course contents and teaching methods
- Constant monitoring of the performance of educators
- Verifiable satisfaction of course participants
We fully and constantly achieve top marks in all these points, but the last one, the continuing appreciation of all our students, is the one we consider most important and the one we take the greater pride in.
This is our assurance: we not only deliver, we strive to exceed your expectations.
AccademiaVino is a full-time professional organization whose activities revolve exclusively around wine education.
Among many other things, this means we are available to answer your queries - by email, phone or in person - every day - Monday to Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m..
Our course tutors are not just wine experts: each one of them has also received specialized educator training from WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust).
Educator courses, held only WSET's London headquarters, are extremely selective. In order to be granted the Educator qualification one must show not only a solid wine knowledge but also the ability to teach effectively.
Winemaking history reaches back for thousands of years. Yet few human activities today are more dynamic.
It is astonishing to see how deep and fast change has been in recent years and how it continues to reshape the world of wine on an almost daily basis.
In order to keep up with new development in the science of wine, as well as in the cultural, legislative and marketing environment, the contents of our courses are constantly updated. This is a challenging and resource-intensive undertaking, but it is what enables us to offer the most modern and relevant wine education available.
Each one of us has different needs, aspirations, motivations and time availability. With this in mind, we have very clear that there can be no one-size-fits-all wine course.
In order to accommodate different needs, our educational offer includes a vast array of possibilities. From easy and fun WSET Level 1 courses through the intermediate WSET Level 2 (now offered in Italian as well as English), all the way to the challenging WSET Level 3. And if your interests go beyond wine to include spirits, we offer WSET Level 1 and WSET Level 2 in spirits as well.
Whether you are interested in a wine or spirits course for your personal enrichment or as part of pursuing a career, we have the right programme for you.
There are AccademiaVino teaching centres in most of the major cities of Italy, plus we hold courses in selected wineries.
This means that you can choose the location that most suits you. And in some cases you can even start a course in one location and then take the exam in a different one.
