“The French Wine Scholar is a very serious wine program but fun and very enjoyable to follow. The teaching is superb and the quality of the material brilliant." Gerard Basset, MW, MS, Best Sommelier in the World 2010
"The French Wine Scholar Program is the industry's most comprehensive, in-depth course on the wines of France." Jay Youmans, Master of Wine
"The FWS is a great complement to the WSET Diploma and I would recommend other students to take it between the Level 3 and the Diploma.[...] The FWS gave the perfect structure to help me finish my WSET Diploma"
Gregory Crommen, WSET Diploma

Matt Coleman, General Manager & Sommelier at Crossings Restaurant in South Passadena.

Caruso, DipWSET, CWE,
