    If you're looking to bolster your knowledge of French wine, then look no further. The information is presented with a historical background that ties into the learning and makes it both interesting and fun. The French Wine Scholar manual could easily serve as the most up to date and accurate reference on the wines of France.

    We are very excited to launch the new advanced level “French Wine Scholar” certification program through the Wine Scholar Guild at Glazers Louisiana. We are happy to embrace this program and look forward to working with the Wine Scholar Guild.

    The French Wine Scholar study manual is really terrific! You should be really proud of it. I have learned six dozens things from it… As a matter of fact, I’m including many of the things I learned into my own presentations on France. I can’t wait to pass the exam and teach the program to our staff.

    We are excited to launch the French Wine Scholar program, which is the first of its kind in the US. It provides the student with the most comprehensive and in-depth look at all of France on an advanced level.
    5 1 5 Robert Kacher
    I fully embrace this program. It is significant in its depth and breadth. I have been involved in French wines for a long time and am delighted to see such an educational initiative finally materialize.
    5 1 5 Xavier Barlier
    Education is the cornerstone of wine appreciation. With the Wine Scholar Guild study and certification program the Wine Scholar Guild provides priceless support to the trade and consumers alike. We cannot thank them enough for their total dedication and enduring commitment.

    I have just purchased the French Wine Scholar Study Manual and I am enjoying studying it immensely. […] I am very interested to hold this certificate and work towards the Master-level programs.
    5 1 5 Edna Bronson
    The French Wine Scholar study manual will be a great tool for anybody interested in learning about French Wines whether their goal is to acquire a diploma or not.
    5 1 5 Kevin Cleary
    The French Wine Scholar program, and all of the programs offered by the Wine Scholar Guild, is the best, most comprehensive course of study for French wine, bar none. The program is well thought out and presented. Anyone wanting to learn about French wines needs to take this program; there is no better program out there.

    FWS program is an indepth, well researched certification program that will benefit wine professionals that aspire to increase their professionalism and acquire a deeper understanding of the various French wine regions. You think you know most of the French wine regions? think again. Take the challenge of the French Wine Scholar program and be a better-informed French wine lover!

    If you are a professional in the wine business looking to enhance your career this is the program for you. Great instructors easy to follow study guide and 24 hour internet access.
    5 1 5 Nava Ramesh
    The FWS Program is a very in-depth serious program for the wine professional or enthusiast. There is no other program like it and attaining the qualification should be a highly recognized achievement.
    5 1 5 Maura O'Brien, FWS
    The program is excellent. It differs in format from many classes taught in that there is a real effort to give context to the regions through discussion of history as well as soils, topography, climate and grapes from each region. The class is not producer driven, but is terroir driven, and teaches students about France as a whole as well as the specific regions.
    5 1 5 Janice Kraynok
    The online academy reinforced the study guide and added another perspective to my study plan. I felt as though the study guide and the online academy complemented each other in a way that made it easier to learn: if you are a visual person, the book covered everything. If you are an aural person, the online modules worked well.
    5 1 5 Brian K. Christ, FWS
    The manual is very well laid out with pertinent information that goes beautifully hand in hand with the online program. It has given me a new appreciation and understanding of French wine. In fact, I am trying to use the information not only in my profession, but to add to my tasting experiences as well by purchasing a bottle from as many of the different AOC\'s as well! An excellent learning tool through and through.<br />For anyone wanted to start a base knowledge and work their way to a rather thorough understanding of French wine and its laws, AOC\'s and characteristics of the wines themselves, this course has it all. Highly recommended for both newcomers and well seasoned wine students alike.
    5 1 5 Tristan Dyer-Kindy
    The Wine Scholar Guild has done an excellent job of creating a study program that appeals to those interested in expanding their knowledge of France and its wine industry. In depth, comprehensive, specific, this course was more detail than anticipated and a lot of fun! If you are a wine professional looking to hone your \&quot;Franco-files\&quot; or an avid wine enthusiast who wants to geek out a bit, this course is highly recommended.
    5 1 5 Christine Campbell, FWS
    Do you like wine? Do you love French wine? If so - the French Wine Scholar program is for you. Very comprehensive with a historical and cultural component, this program truly furthers information and confidence about the best wine country in the world.
    5 1 5 Matthew Anderson, FWS
    Approachable, yet complex. The FWS program provides a foundation of knowledge that is both challenging and practical. The book helps make the connection between history, soil, and grapes; which is essential in understanding French wine.
    5 1 5 Kevin Sharkey
    The FWS program is an excellent program for the seasoned industry veteran as well as someone who is just learning about wine. The information is presented in a logical and well thought out way...it allows the student to build layer upon layer of information to their knowledge base. The material and maps help to give the student a better understanding of how important terrior is to the taste, style, and quality of wine.
    5 1 5 Ronald Fierstein
    This was the comprehensive study of French wine that I was hoping for. It is assuredly not for beginners, but if you have a basic education in the subject, and viticulture and viniculture in general, then I recommend this course highly if you seek to take your knowledge of French wine to the next level. The focus on geography, topography, and terroir, as well as grape varieties and even history, in giving each of the French wine regions its particular character, was spot on.
