Congratulations to Sonia Hyncik Beauvarlet, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors with Wine Smarties in San Diego !
"After 23 years working in the Southern California commercial real estate field, I decided to make a life change by pursuing a new career in the wine business. I just started working at a wine store but I've also been helping out at local San Diego wineries to gain knowledge in winegrowing and winemaking. [...]
The course book was beautifully written and is something I will frequently consult. The online Wine Scholar Guild tools also made a difference for me: thorough course modules, detailed maps, beautiful illustrations, comprehensive quizzes... To date, the French Wine Scholar course has been the best educational experience on this journey. I feel it has helped me become a better student and made me step out of my comfort zone when approaching new subject matter and new wines. I am anxious to try the Italian Wine Scholar course and hope it will soon be available in San Diego." Read More.
