    Program Provider Award of Excellence Announced!

    Starting in 2014, the Wine Scholar Guild will be acknowledging its star program provider each calendar year. The award of excellence will be based on the number of students the program provider instructs over a 12-month period,  student evaluations, facilities, and the overall profile of the course offerings given by that learning institution or instructor.


    “The most important aspect of the evaluation will be the student evaluations,” states FWS President, Julien Camus. “Their satisfaction is paramount. We want students to feel enlightened, inspired and empowered. Good instructors do that!”


    “It is also important to recognize the depth and breadth of the other programs these instructors teach. It is this skill package that enables them to make accurate New World-Old World comparisons as well as to teach about France in proper contrast to other European producers,” adds Lisa Airey, FWS Education Director. “We wish to acknowledge the caliber of all that they do with this award.”


    The first Award of Excellence recipient will be announced on  January 13, 2014.


    The French Wine Scholar Study and Certification program provides current, accurate and in-depth information on the wines and wine regions of France. Developed and administrated by the Wine Scholar Guild with the support of the French Ministry of Agriculture, this specialization program  is designed for advanced students of wine, whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists.
