    Congratulations to Bizhen Chen, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Bizhen:

    I am the co-founder of a wine trading and sales company, meanwhile I deliver lectures as a wine educator in a wine school. Undoubtedly my career is quite involved with wine industry, however rather than defining myself as a wine professional, I would like to use the status ‘a wine enthusiast’. I have fallen in love with wine since the legal drinking age haha! Stay thirsty, stay foolish. I believe that Enthusiasm, which leads me to the professional journey, makes a master.

    I also own these wine certification: WSET Diploma, WSET Nominated Educator, VIA Italian Wine Ambassador.
    The FWS program provides good knowledge supplement toward wine educators. It has a systematic structure with up-to-date information. The language is allusive and witty, yet easy to understand.

    The FWS program is insightful and helps to broaden and solidify my knowledge. Sincerely speaking, the program is great and I would love to introduce it to my students.

    WSG thanks the following organizations for their support:
