Etna Wine School delivers expert consulting & educational services
for wineries, wine-trade professionals, and gastronomic students
The Etna Wine School was founded in 2011 out of curiosity and a profound affinity for Mount Etna's unique volcanic wines.
Since then, our connection to the Etna community and Etna wine lovers from around the world has grown exponentially.
In 2020, The New Wines of Mount Etna was published and we launched our online courses for distance learners who cannot travel to the volcano.
Benjamin Spencer is the Director of Etna Wine School and author of The New Wines of Mount Etna. In addition to holding a Diploma from the London-based Wine & Spirit Education Trust, Ben is a journalist, wine judge, and a professional winemaker with two decades of experience working with artisan and internationally traded wine brands in California and Italy.
