Classroom Learning

Classroom Learning

French Wine Scholar™ classes are offered by licensed program providers and delivered by an approved FWS instructor.  This study format includes:

  • Classroom instruction with tutored tastings
  • FWS study manual
  • Access to the FWS online study modules & quizzes for one year
  • In-classroom exam sit

All FWS program providers teach from the same Wine Scholar Guild-developed Powerpoint presentations and are supplied with uniform teaching materials.

Naturally, each instructor has a unique teaching style, the wine selection will vary by market, the class length and class structure (weekly, biweekly, weekends etc.) will vary from location to location, but the content will be the same no matter where you take the class. For many, the classroom experience helps to hammer home the theory; a tutored tasting component brings each region to life. Many students find the set “schedule” helpful in keeping on top of their studies.

There are 51 French Wine Scholar program providers in the USA, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Shanghai, UK, Ireland, France, Colombia and Brazil.
