Students to Travel to Italy on Fully Sponsored Eight-Day Scholastic Tour
Two Collins College students earned a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel on a fully sponsored eight-day scholastic tour of Italy this May. The Banfi Scholastic Tour of Italy allows students and faculty to experience the beautiful rolling hills and lush vineyards of the country, while learning everything about Italian wines and food.
The tour is sponsored by The Banfi Vintners Foundation, the philanthropic side of the wine importer, Banfi Vintners, which contributes to charities, scholarships, fellowships and grants. Banfi is dedicated to promoting fine European and U.S. wine education.
The Collins College selected students Aric Attebery and Giuseppe Scarpello for this year’s scholastic tour. The recipients were chosen based on their wine experience, GPA, completed beverage courses and career goals.
“I am excited to experience, firsthand, the Italian wine industry and the winemaking process,” Scarpello says. “Touring the vineyards and cellars will give me another sense of appreciation for wine.”
Professor Sandy Kapoor accompanied Attebery and Scarpello on the tour.
“Students are encouraged to experience as many scholastic study abroad opportunities as possible in order to broaden their world view and perspective and experience personal growth and development,” says Dr. Kapoor. “These experiences help students gain a hands-on appreciation for cultural differences and diversity.”
