Anyone who has the slightest curiosity about France and French wines will be amazed as how vast and different are French wines from other parts of the world and from each other.

The most useful tool for any sommelier wishing to elevate their French wine knowledge.

This program offers you a complete training and understanding on all the styles of wines that you could find in France. I have been studying wines for a few years and this course gave the chance to find a lot of rich and new information on the French wine industry.

The FWS program is by far the more in-depth course I had about French wines. As a tour guide myself, I very much appreciated the demonstration of how intertwined French history and wine culture are.
5 1 5 Lucas Reynaud Paligot on Dec 1, 2022
Amazing program !
Waiting for my answer of my exam and already looking forward to start a new education
5 1 5 Nicholas Poletto on Nov 20, 2022
The FWS study program is one of the most complete and coherent wine programs I have ever experienced. The additional learning tools (videos, maps, flashcards) were incredible. I have not seen an education platform with this many available resources. The teaching was easy to follow and I came away knowing so much more about French wine, history and geography. I really feel as though I am now an expert. Thank you!
5 1 4 Nanako Yabe on Nov 17, 2022
The program is complete both in theory from the study materials and in practice with the wine tastings.
All the maps are very helpful
5 1 5 Cindy Gourlie on Nov 2, 2022
What a great program! Have taken WSET 1-3, CSW and CMS. This was by far my favorite. I really enjoyed the in depth look at history, local cuisine and deep insight into all things terroir. The course was very easy to maneuver independently . I will highly recommend this course as a supplement to other wine certifications especially with the in depth dive into regions that laid the foundation for all others.
5 1 4 Luiz Gustavo Ams Prestes on Nov 1, 2022
I am very happy with everything that I got from a personal study from FWS course. Its a lot of new information acquired. Thank you !
5 1 4 Serge Perrin Merinos on Sep 15, 2022
Deep dive in french wines. Very complementary to other reputed wines curriculums (e.g. WSET3). As a french citizen, I have learnt many things that the great majority of my compatriots (including wine lovers) have no clues about.
5 1 5 Jocelyn NICOLAS on Aug 22, 2022
An exciting learning experience, with a global vision of french wines (geology, history, geography, regulations, wine industry, winemaking, wine characteristics etc...) !
5 1 5 Rosana Pasini on Aug 4, 2022
WSG has definetelly the best online materials for the student to study. It's clear, it's simple and shows the details of terroirs, history, wines in a very easy and lovey way. The classes are great and pleasant. I'll definetelly go on studying with WSG.
5 1 5 Celia Corigliano on Aug 3, 2022
Very satisfied.
Concepts solidificated.
Very good ilustration that helps the information capture.
5 1 4 Che Chun Alex Tsui on Jul 28, 2022
A top-notch qualification enabling everybody to take a deep dive into French Wines! The materials are incredibly well written and the online studying materials are very helpful as well.

I especially like the recently-published list of recommended producers and appreciate that there are hundreds of high-quality wine labels presented as examples throughout the online learning module.
5 1 4 Edward Halibozek on Jul 26, 2022
Great program with excellent course material. Perhaps too much information for a short term course.
5 1 5 Ronbenitez on Jul 26, 2022
Was fun, look forward to the next one
5 1 5 Adam Saun on Jul 13, 2022
I would highly recommend this course to any professional or enthusiast who has an interest in French wine. The course goes into great detail giving you a deep understanding of the history, climate, viticulture, winemaking, key wine styles and AOCs of all the French wine regions. It really immerses you in the culture of France and it will make you want to travel to each and every one of the regions!
5 1 5 I Putu Rio Chandrabawa Adi Wiguna on Jun 23, 2022
I would definitely recommend everyone to take WSG courses to expand their knowledge of wine...looking to further dig down the world of wine, you can't be wrong with entrusting that journey with WSG. The materials are well-designed by experts in such a way that can be easily digested despite the sheer amount of depth.
5 1 5 Mark Snow on Jun 1, 2022
The French Wine Scholar course is an exercise in excellence. The materials are rigorously crafted by people who obviously love the wines of the region, and the information within is invaluable to anyone seeking advanced knowledge of this most famous of winemaking countries. The textbook will continue to be a resource for me for years to come.
5 1 5 Timothy Henshaw on May 26, 2022
A very interesting and thoroughly enjoyable course, that combines Classroom, Online and private study opportunities, with the added bonus of being able to taste the wines from the various regions, which helps to cement the idea of Terroir into the style and profile of the regions.
5 1 5 Sabina Poirier on May 12, 2022
Overall, the program is excellent. It has given me a more complete view of the wines of France than I've had in the past. Specifically, I learned about regions that I've not really been exposed to much, and it has given me a better understanding of context. It has also given me a much easier way to think of Bourgogne, especially, the Côte d'Or. I've long had trouble remembering what was what in the Côte d'Or (despite working with some iconic wineries), and I feel much more confident. This goes for all regions really - the course really helps to understand the regions, terroirs, viti, vini, and history, and how it all fits together.
5 1 5 Ylva Lindskog on Apr 28, 2022
Really enjoyed the programme - thank you!
5 1 4 Milos Jerabek on Apr 28, 2022
I love your take :)
5 1 5 Ying Ying Chen on Apr 28, 2022
As a wine amteur, I really enjoyed the FWS journey, and have learnt so much from it. I have just finished WSET L3 and finding that I wanted to learn more. FWS expanded my understanding on French wine region, history and deepen my knowledge of how French classifying system works and more pleasure in appreciating wine. Will keep going with WSG study and look forward to the wine trips in the future!
5 1 5 Alejandro Artigas on Apr 13, 2022
The course was an excellent and thorough immersion in not only French wines, but France as a whole. History, geography, culture, through the lens of wines. I loved the course, it will forever inform me. This course is so important for any wine lover, that there must be a before and after date. As all wine roads go through France.
5 1 4 Leah Spooner on Apr 8, 2022
The material is excellent and will leave students with a thorough and impactful knowledge of French wine.
