The initiative, promoted and organized by Consorzio di Tutela Barolo Barbaresco Alba Langhe e Dogliani together with Strada del Barolo e grandi vini di Langa, is aimed at trainers, brand managers, journalists and buyers with the aim of creating a global network of Langhe Wines Ambassadors.
The Academy offers a mix of traditional lectures, guided tastings and lunches and on-site field trips led by highly qualified teachers, carefully selected among the region’s top experts.
The course in attendance is divided into three modules – climate and geology, native grapes of Piemonte and winemaking – taking place over three days, from Friday to Sunday. In addition to traditional lectures led by highly qualified teachers from the region, the programme also includes on-site field trips and tastings.
The program coordinator is the sommelier and tourist guide Sandro Minella. Natural scientist and geologist Edmondo Bonelli will take students on a journey through the geological eras of the Piemonte’s Tertiary Basin. Agronomist and professor Edoardo Monticelli will be in charge of the modules about native grapes – from Nebbiolo to the other vines of the Langhe. Professor Vincenzo Gerbi from the Università di Torino will lecture about the evolution of winemaking techniques. A final talk led by professor Stefano Massaglia will look at the Langhe wines’ market challenges and perspectives. Wine tastings will be held during each module.
