Introducing

VinumVersity


A different approach to learning about wine

What IS VinumVersity?

There are many ways to study wine, many approaches, infinite motivations.

Some of you study wine for a living, some would simply like a diploma, some wish to make a good impression over dinner with friends.  If you search online you'll find thousands of courses, millions of video tutorials, infinite organizations, groups, and clubs that talk about wine.

Learning all the technique, history, and science of wine if your goal is to become a famous sommelier is useless if you're unable to communicate this knowledge to those who know nothing about wine in a way that allows them to care.

Our video lessons are born precisely with this intent. Bringing wine back to its role as a social connector, as a carrier of stories, landscapes, cultures and people. We start from the landscape, history, practices and traditions of artisan winemakers and skip the textbooks filled with general knowledge you can find with a simple google search.

So instead of starting from the label, the score, the macro region, the style and the grape variety in Community.Wine we focus on the path and the people who lead to the label and not the other way around.  Every story, every practice, every territory is different, unique, unrepeatable, as should be every bottle, every taste, every experience which is shared at the table.

Our informal courses are designed not to make distinctions between enthusiasts and professionals, between master sommeliers and simple occasional drinkers.

Because knowledge is useless if not shared.

Free and Designed for All

Our courses are designed not to make distinctions between enthusiasts and professionals, between sommeliers and simple occasional drinkers. This course is designed for anyone with sommelier training (or not) and will only take 30 minutes per week.

Wine Enthusiasts

The Community.wine platform allows the common drinker to gain awareness, learn in a simple and effective way to drink well, discover places and landscapes outside the classic and exploited mass tourism networks.  We give you the chance to speak to winemakers directly.
