I have thoroughly enjoyed the Italian Wine Scholar Unit II (and I). It really has opened up a great interest and given me a very valuable understanding of Italian wines - the history geography geology etc adds to the learning so well and makes it even more interesting. Am recommending the WSG courses to all my wine friends (I have done the French WS as well).

If you are an enthusiast about wine you should go to any wine course. If you really want to go deep in knowing everything about wines from Italy (or Spain and/or France) you must go for a WSG course!

I would highly recommend this course for anyone who seriously wants to take a deep dive into Italian wine. The content covers the hundreds of DOC/DOCGs, and their fascinating native grape varieties in great detail, not only giving you a great understanding of the wines but also the history and culture of every Italian wine region.

IWS is a truly comprehensive course, that goes much deeper than general wine certifications. IWS is absolutely essential for anyone who deals in Italian wine: merchants, restaurateurs, sommeliers.

The IWS is by far the most comprehensive program about Italian wines. The rich material is designed to be logical, presenting key points of history, geography and climate, linked all those elements to grapes and traditions to each region. A truly delightful journey of culture, knowledge and learning about the fantastic world of wine. I highly recommend the IWS program. Congratulations to the WSG team!

With WSC I discovered and understood dynamics about Italian wine that are hard to find in other programs, depens into the history, geography, traditions of each individual region as a starting point
to describe the grape varieties used and the different denominations of origin.
Not only can you get to know Italian wine in depth, but discover the whole Italy!

I loved the IWS program (U1 and U2) because it gave a good overview and somewhat in depth look into Italy's many DOC and DOCGs and their grapes. It was a good challenge to conquer the history and appellations of the 20 regions. Now, I feel almost complete (I still need to taste all the native grapes ;)) in my Italian wine studies, or have I only started. After completing the IWS and VIA certifications, I can say my journey into Italy has only begun, proper! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn Italy without being overwhelmed.
