The 1st level explores the topics of viticulture, enology, tasting techniques and service, which represent the basis of the professionalism of the Sommelier, starting from the correct serving temperature of the wines up to the organization and management of the cellar.
The 2nd level explores the world of wine and leads to the knowledge of Italian and foreign production, with particular attention to the indissoluble bond with the territory. The 2nd level also perfects the wine tasting technique, which is crucial to be able to appreciate every sensorial nuance and, in particular, to express an opinion on its quality.
