Into Italian Wine: The Italian Wine Professional™ Course Book
Into Italian Wine is the book that accompanies the Italian Wine Professional course. It is included in the price of the IWP course, so students in that course will get one automatically. Students in the Level 1 course Discovering Italian Wine may want to purchase a copy of the book for themselves as a more advanced study resource and reference book. Those who are highly self-motivated and/or on a tight budget may choose to buy Into Italian Wine and follow the course as a self-study program equivalent to the IWP; they may subsequently register to take the IWP exam for an additional fee, if desired.
Into Italian Wine covers the same material as the Italian Wine Professional online course, except that it does not include access to the online forum, quizzes, instructor access, or the IWP exam. The book does contain many of the images and maps of the online course, along with the unit exercises. In addition, the book’s appendix contains a synopsis of relevant information about Italian wine denominations from the Italian Wine Central website as a handy reference.
This manual is the most current book about Italian wine in print. It is continually updated as the landscape of Italian wine changes. Because Into Italian Wine is a print-on-demand product, the book is almost as up to date as the Italian Wine Central website itself at the time of printing.
