Vitaliy Kovach Sommelier School #155


Innovative online educational project

In difficult times, people often seek new knowledge and interesting experiences. This protects us from stress and excessive tension. One of these “anti-stress” areas is the innovative online educational project “Vitaliy Kovach Sommelier School”, which teaches according to the standards of the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI). 

The ability to understand good wine is a unique and effective way to always be in a good mood and have peace of mind. After all, tasting wine, even affordable wine, requires concentration and detachment from everything else. A glass of delicious wine can be compared to an injection of happiness, which makes you forget about troubles and learn to enjoy life.

Following his unique way

Vitaliy Kovach set himself exactly this goal when he thought about creating his own sommelier school. He has spent many years studying the intricacies of the sommelier profession – his favorite pastime. For some time, he lived and worked in Italy, where he acquired his unusual specialty.

Educational institution + the culture of winemaking and wine consumption

In total, Vitaliy has been involved in sommellerie for 20 years and is the most famous wine expert in Ukraine, a member of the Italian Sommelier Association and a brand ambassador of Villa Sandi, the world’s leading Prosecco producer. 

Vitaliy Kovach Sommelier School is an innovative educational institution that is not connected to a specific territory or place. In recent years, Vitaliy Kovach Sommelier School has trained future experts in Kyiv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Khmelnytsky, Chernivtsi, Lviv, Chernihiv, Cherkasy… Over the seven years of its existence, the school has trained hundreds of professional sommeliers.

The School’s graduates work all over the world. They work on huge cruise ships, in world-class hotel brands, wine boutiques, in small but incredibly cozy wine restaurants.

Vitaliy Kovach’ Sommelier School does not initially require a high level of knowledge. Its professional staff trains people who want to gain knowledge for themselves. Vitaliy Kovach attracts everyone who is fascinated by the amazing world of wine and dreams of understanding it even deeper. 

After all, it is incredibly pleasant to discover unique visual and aromatic shades of the drink, to understand the difference in the flavor notes of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay or Riesling wines and to get involved in the culture of winemaking and wine consumption in your own way.

In addition, the school has its own vineyard, where a large number of different varieties from around the world are represented. The students of the school have the opportunity to learn about the world of viticulture on their own.
