FWS: New 6th Edition was just released!

The 6th Edition of the French Wine Scholar program has just been released!

The FWS manual has been fully updated and reformatted into a perfect binding (no more spiral!) with:

  • New, custom-designed maps
  • New charts, graphics and rich imagery
  • Need-to-know icons now mark all AOCs that count as test material eliminating some appellations that are seldom exported beyond their local zone of production.

In keeping with these changes, the online study program has been upgraded and is now fully mobile compatible.

All teaching materials have been updated and given a fresh look also!

This new edition has been enriched thanks to the insights provided by area experts including: Mélanie Poupart (Loire), Wink Lorch (Jura/Savoie), Thierry Meyer (Alsace), Marie-Céline Wallerand and  Tom Fiorina (Corsica), Eric Aracil (Roussillon), Elizabeth Gabay MW (Provence), Catherine Machabert (Languedoc) and Emmanuelle Voinier (Rhône).
