The Wine House has launched the new and updated French Wine Scholar (FWS) curriculum. The course is taught by the experienced academic team that manages the WSET Level 4 Diploma program in Los Angeles. All instructors hold the FWS, DWS or MW certifications.

The French Wine Scholar Study and Certification program provides current, accurate and in-depth information on the wines and wine regions of France. Developed and administrated by the Wine Scholar Guild with the support of the French Ministry of Agriculture, this specialization program is designed for advanced students of wine, whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists. Students of wine who follow this in-depth curriculum and pass the exam will earn the French Wine Scholar (FWS) post-nominal (e.g., John Smith, FWS). The exam is given in multiple-choice format. There are 100 questions covering all of the wine regions of France. Passing score is 75. Students must be at least 21 years of age.

French wine regions and styles are the "reference points" in the world of wine, making an in-depth understanding of French wine indispensible.
