Hats off to Sharon McLean in British Columbia, Canada, who recently passed the French Wine Scholar exam with an impressive score of 99%!

Sharon McLean is a certified sommelier (through International Sommelier Guild), libations writer for Boulevard magazine and the instructor of Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) courses on Vancouver Island for the International Culinary School at the Art Institute. In 2009, she completed the WSET Diploma with the highest marks in Canada. Since then she has gone on to become a Certified Sherry Educator, is currently a second year Masters of Wine candidate... and just earned the French Wine Scholar credential!

The FWS is also thrilled to welcome Sharon as part of the team of instructors teaching the FWS program at the International Culinary School at the Art Institute in Vancouver.


Words from Sharon:

"I talk about France all the time to my students and in my seminars, so it was great to have such up-to-date information in the FWS course materials. Having access to the high quality online tutorials and webinars was excellent and appreciated. I'm looking forward to Master-Level Programs."

Julien Camus

Founder & President @ Wine Scholar Guild

Julien worked as Trade Attaché for wines and spirits at the French Embassy in Washington DC (2004-2006). In this role, he recognized the need for French wine education as a means to spur consumer demand and interest in his country’s wines.

To that end, he founded the Wine Scholar Guild in August of 2005,an organization dedicated to the promotion of French wine and culture through education. Julien invited national importers of French wine to join the organization as Industry Members and 25 key French wine importers did so immediately.

After leaving the embassy, he has devoted his energies to developing the Wine Scholar Guild and its network of program providers around the globe. Julien holds a Masters Degree in Business Administration with a major in International Marketing from the Strasbourg Management School.

In 2019, Julien was one of the "Future 50" award winners, an award created by WSET and IWSC to acknowledge professionals under 40 who have made a significant contribution to the industry.
