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.  The FWS program allows wine enthusiast and professionals to set themselves apart from their peers by specializing in the wines of France.

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.

Why become a French Wine Master?

By studying French wine, the student gains a deeper appreciation for the grape and its travels and a reference point for Old World/New World comparisons.
