    Congratulations to Deborah Petrock Kirch, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    "I received my envelope last evening and upon opening I was filled with Joy!  Highest Honors...

    The FWS Online Course is so well done.  It enabled me to study during every minute of free time that I had.  Book learning is all fine and good.  But the live and then recorded webinars plus the online study program is stellar.  I was able to review by listening on the go!

    Hats off to Lisa and Sharon for their highly skilled professionalism mixed with genuine sincerity. I was very sad the day of our last live webinar.

    I look forward to completing my Rhône Master-Level program and going to France in June for the Rhône Study Trip.

    This has been a life long dream to understand French Wine. I have studied other programs but this finally cemented the knowledge into my being. My family is in the retail wine business and on Saturday a customer came in with little time to spare and needed 4 bottles of quality Wine.  Price was no issue.  With confidence I selected 4 bottles and gave the customer enough background knowledge to be the star of their dinner party! She was so grateful and I was so happy to be able to provide that level of customer service.

    Thank you again for offering such great wine education programs.

    With Warm Regards,
