Wineserver is the official educator of the Italian Wine Scholar diploma in Finland. Italy is one of the most important wine countries in the world, with different regions having their own traditions, culture, wine styles and local grape varieties. The Italian wine course also includes information on the growing environment, history and production of wines. To ease the study burden, the Italian wine diploma is divided into two parts. Those who pass both parts receive a pin, a diploma and the title of Italian Wine Scholar (IWS).
