Module 1
Online theoretical lectures

Module 2 - March 8 to 10 2021
Practical sessions - Hong Kong

Due to the current situation, the team is unable to travel to bring you VIA themselves.  However, with the help of our local partners, supporters, and the faculty we can still bring VIA to you!

We have adapted to the current situation and can guarantee the same level of information and knowledge that VIA is known for, but using an innovative format. You can proceed with your Italian Wine study and certification in Hong Kong, but this time in a hybrid format.

Course format
What does the hybrid format mean?  Simple, the hybrid format groups the four sessions into two parts:

• Online theory sessions:
The online sessions will be on our digital learning platform where students can watch and follow recorded video lessons from our faculty. Students will have access to the platform and videos after they complete the registration.

• The Practical tasting sessions, Q&A sessions:
The practical sessions will take place from March 8 to 10,  2021;
This session is divided between practical lessons, focused on a wine tasting of selected wines and Q&A sessions with the Faculty.

On the last day of the practical session, students will sit the exam:
100 multiple choice questions;
2 short answer questions;
Blind tasting of 2 wines;
Students are also requested to submit a video project in advance as part of the examination.
