    The Wine Scholar Guild is hosting a full-day primer on France’s northern wine regions at SommCon DC in July. Sharpen your pencils and come well-rested, you could go home a winner!

    French Wine Scholar Review Day with Education Director, Lisa Airey, FWS, CWE

    We will start this full-day program with a quick 20-question quiz! Bring your A-game! There are prizes to be won!

    During this session, we will review the important wine regions of France’s north: Alsace, Champagne, Bourgogne, Beaujolais, and Loire.

    We will go over the biggest stumbling blocks to mastery for each region and clarify the complicated bits. The program is informative, fun and interactive.

    Although a stand-alone primer on France, the day also serves to introduce participants to the depth and breadth of the French Wine Scholar certification program.


    This advanced program is designed for serious students of wine, both trade and non-trade who wish to hone their knowledge of the wines of France.  From a terroir-ist standpoint, the program dives deeply into why the wines of France have the structure and character they do.



    Benchmark wines for each French wine region will accompany the lecture allowing students to put theory to the taste test.


    At day’s end, the top scorer on the opening quiz will receive a scholarship to the French Wine Scholar On-Line program (value $595).


    • Date & Time: Sunday, July 22nd, 2018 from 9:00a.m. - 4:00p.m
      with a one-hour lunch break (lunch not included)
    • Location: SommCon DC - The Westin Georgetown, 2350 M St NW, Washington, DC 20037
    • Cost: $250 (WSG members enjoy a 10% discount.) Fee is for this full-day session only. SommCon, which kicks off Sunday evening and runs through Tuesday evening, July 22-24 is a separate registration and fee. See below.)


    Non-winning participants who wish to enroll in the FWS program (whether in its distance-learning format or in classroom-learning format at our DC program provider, Capital Wine School) can apply $195 of the review day seminar fee toward their tuition.
