Diego Meraviglia, Vice President and Director of Education of the North American Sommelier Association (NASA) and Gold-Pin Sommelier presents a new, 6 hour course that covers the vast majority of wines produced in the Piemonte region; their typicality, classification, history, characteristics and folklore, as well as notions of traditional food pairings and overview of the entire region itself. Tasting of the most representative wine appellations in Piemonte, alongside some hidden gems, is also included. The course is designed to please both the wine enthusiast and professional.

Although often compared to France’s Burgundy, Piemonte has seemed out of reach for many to grasp and remains shrouded in mystery. Meraviglia aims to “lift some of the fog” (so typical of this land) and provide a comprehensive understanding of the culture, food and, most importantly, the wine.

Some Background Information:

The Italian region of Piemonte is widely considered by the wine community as one of the most prominent, historical, unique and significant wine regions of the world, producing such prized wines as Barolo, Barbaresco, Moscato D’Asti, Gavi and Barbera D’Asti, to name a few. With a 3000+ year history rooted in its ancient Celtic heritage, surrounded by some of the most breathtaking mountains on the planet and with mystical towns as unreachable and untouchable as they are seductive, Piemonte continues to inspire and seduce both the wine world and the culinary world, maintaining its prime position as Italy’s number 1 wine region (right alongside Tuscany).

The course costs $270.00 with all included, and a $50.00 discount is offered to current NASA members. To register, visit: For information, call 786.427.9187 or email
