VIA USA Agile Edition 2021
Jun 30
Las Vegas, NV
Registration Deadline: Jun 30, 2021
Event Type: Seminars and Classes,Other
Description: Due to the current situation, we are unable to travel to bring you VIA in person this year, so we have adapted the course to make it possible for you to continue your Italian wine certification as distance learning in a hybrid online format.

Course format
The course will consist of 4 major components:

• Online theory sessions:
When you have signed up and paid for the course you will be given access to our online learning platform. Here you will find the theory sessions presented by the Faculty. These sessions should be followed ahead of the corresponding guided tasting and Q&A.

• Online Q&A session:
Scheduled Zoom Q&A sessions directly with the faculty to ask questions regarding the theory sessions so far. These sessions will then be uploaded onto the digital platform so that students are able to review them as they prepare for the exams.

• Virtual guided tastings:
Guided tastings will constitute the majority of the second part of the course and give the opportunity to taste the wines with the faculty using the VIA Tasting Grid at one of the tasting centers spreading around the US. The tasting centers are set up respecting the social distancing and safety guidance. Included in the course fee there will be 36 benchmark wines that will be presented as part of the guided tastings at the tasting center. The faculty will connect with the student online and conduct the tasting with the students.

• The examinations:
Exams will take place in July. They will consist of 100 multiple choice questions, 2 short answer questions, and blind tasting.
In addition, you will be required to produce a short video presentation on a topic that will be released at the start of the course.
