Congratulations to Crystal Chan, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors with AWSEC in Hong Kong.


"The FWS program is one of the most informative wine courses I have attended.

It covers history, winemaking, some producers and style description. It even covers lesser-known region like Jura and Savoir which is eye-opening.


The depth of information is the key success. It is definitely useful for my further Diploma study."
