Congratulations to Crystal, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors with AWSEC in Hong Kong.
I’m a wine columnist from Hong Kong, specializing in cooking & wine pairing. “品酒師的廚房” is a food pairing cookbook written by my husband David Wong and me. I also write in wine column such as Jiu Jik magazine, Sing Tao newspaper and Cru magazine. We start up Pink Pink Wine to teach wine course for corporate client.
Tasting a glass of Meursault as a trainee at Four Seasons Hotel inspired me to learn about wine. Soon I studied WSET level 2, 3, WSET sake level 3, French wine scholar and now WSET Diploma. FWS program is deep-dive course which provides detailed information.
FWS program is one of the most informative wine courses I have attended. It covers history, wine making, some producers and style description. It even covers lesser-known region like Jura and Savoir which is eye-opening. The depth of information is the key success. It is definitely useful for my further Diploma study. FWS helped to build my foundation in France. In the future, I am very interested to study Spanish wine scholar and Italian wine scholar courses as well.
