ONAV: Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiatori di Vino

ONAV courses are restarting !

The italian National Organization of Wine Tasters was born in Asti in 1951 for responding to the need of create a team of reliable tasters, specifically prepared and examined, involved into evaluate the wines produced at the time.

The taster must demonstrate natural talent and specific technical knowledge, which could be obtained through an in-depth training. All this in order to certify the students and make them qualified to give a meaningful and complete judgement on the quality of the tasted wine.

Today, ONAV classes are widespread throughout Italy and beyond: they also have active sections abroad such as Colombia, Bruxelles, Perù and UAE. ONAV also created a magazine you can receive every three months called “L’Assaggiatore”.

The aim is to refresh former student’s memories with tastings and experiences !
