THE SOMM JOURNAL The CRU ARTISAN COLLEGE is an ambitious three- city tour of Italian winemakers and educators, each day's session packed with five different semi- nars that still manage to finish well before dinner service begins! Plugging into the past three years of success, in 2017 Cru Artisan College will join forces with the Wine Scholar Guild to amplify this already extraordinary, immersive curriculum. Maurizio Broggi, DWS, FWS, and Wine Scholar Guild's Director of Education for Italy will serve as headmaster for the entire tour's fourth year, working in conjunction with distinguished local sommeliers. This intimate, unique education will also include tasting through an array of Italian wines, culinary pairings, and even cash prizes for volunteered com - petitive blind tastings, to merge a well-rounded adventure for wine and gastro geeks.
