. UPDATE: SPANISH WINE SCHOLAR PROGRAM .

 

At long last, we have begun development of our Spanish Wine Scholar program scheduled to launch in the fall of 2018!

The program is spearheaded by Rick Fisher, a San Diego resident of Catalan descent. Rick’s passion for his Spanish heritage and a desire to educate others about Spanish culture, food, and wine led him to create Bodega: Eat. Drink. Explore. ESPAÑA! (www.bodegaspanishwine.com) in 2009. He joined the Wine Scholar Guild in June of 2017 to build our Spanish study and certification program.

“I’ve spent many years focusing on Spain,” states Rick. “I’ve travelled extensively throughout the country while tasting and blogging about this dynamic landscape, its wines and its culture. Although the Spanish Wine Scholar program is a new Wine Scholar Guild initiative, for me, it’s the closing of a circle. Spain is where I began my wine studies. Now, I’ll be giving others a guided curriculum. I can’t tell you how good that feels.” READ MORE

ITALIAN WINE SCHOLAR: Karin Kallio, FWS, IWS

Congratulations to Karin Kallio, IWS, for passing the Italian Wine Scholar exam with highest honors with Cru Consultancy in Victoria BC!

 

"The Italian Wine Scholar opened up the vast world of Italian wine. [...]

 

The Italian Wine Scholar has undoubtedly improved my knowledge of old world Italian wines and has, thus, boosted my confidence to sell Italian wine.

 

Every wine has a story and with this newly acquired education I can better articulate to customers the technique and history behind some of the best wines in the world." READ MORE
