Become a French Wine Scholar!
The French Wine Scholar™ education program is the most advanced, comprehensive, and up-to-date French wine course available. The syllabus takes a regional approach and discusses all French wine appellations and the factors that shape their identities.
The program provides committed students of wine with an unparalleled set of study tools that are designed to maximize learning and boost knowledge retention.
The program includes all the necessary tools & support to Master the wines of France:
Our sessions will include 18 hours of classroom instruction with tutored tasting taught by approved instructor, Erika Frey, FWS, IWS, SWS, DipWSET plus:
In order to bring each region to life, you will also taste many different wines over the course of the program.
Who is this program for?
The French Wine Scholar Program covers French wine law, grape varieties, viticulture, winemaking and all of the French wine regions. This core body of knowledge is important whether you sell wine, buy wine or teach about wine. It is a great resource and supplement for students of wine moving toward advanced general wine study programs such as WSET Diploma, Master of Wine program, Court of Master Sommeliers’ Advanced Sommelier (and up) or Certified Wine Educator.
While not a pre-requisite, we recommend that students successfully complete at least the lower level course from one of these organizations before entering the FWS program.
The course is offered both in-person or virtually-you choose what works best for you!
