Congratulations to  Kevin Cleary, FWS

Hats off to Kevin Cleary who recently passed the French Wine Scholar exam & Sud de France Master-Level exam, both with a high score!

Kevin is the Founder/Director of the Vermont Wine School in Burlington, Vermont.

When not teaching about, learning about or tasting wine Kevin works as the Chef/Co-owner (with his wife Kathi) of L’Amante Ristorante in Burlington.

Kevin plans to offer the French Wine Scholar program through the Vermont Wine School beginning in 2012.

 

Words from Kevin:

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."

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.
