The French Wine Scholars program was the most prepared, informative and resourceful wine course I have ever taken. It was not easy but it was fair challenge!

This is a very good programme for serious wine enthusiasts looking to further their wine education beyond WSET Level 3 but who can't commit to the full Diploma programme. Highly recommended.

The French Wine Scholar program was a joyful learning experience. We explored deeply each and every region of France, and we tasted wines from all the regions, including wines from lesser-known regions such as Savoie, Jura and Corsica. Overall, it was much more challenging than I had anticipated and anyone who passes this exam should be proud of their accomplishment. The FWS postscript is meaningful!

The FWS program has been a great way for me to revisit the classic regions, and to further explore the heritage and value offered by lesser known areas. It has added depth and breadth of knowledge of industry trends and changes in French wine law. It certainly will be beneficial to my ongoing WSET Diploma studies.

Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful course. I am still impressed by how seamlessly your in-depth curriculum was delivered to me (both in my classroom & online) in such a sensible, yet engaging format. Mr. Neptune was/is simply fantastic at bringing your program to life and Mrs. Airey’s online lectures the really cemented the content for me. The FWS Program was truly an educational delight.

The French Wine Scholar study manual is really terrific! You should be really proud of it. I have learned six dozens things from it… As a matter of fact, I’m including many of the things I learned into my own presentations on France. I can’t wait to pass the exam and teach the program to our staff.

The French Wine Scholar Program gives an excellent foundation to approach wine lists with confidence and enjoy great food and wine pairings, like the French do!

I highly recommend the course to wine enthusiasts who would like an insider\'s knowledge of the wines of France. You\'ll be planning your next trip to one of the wine regions you study!

The FWS Program is a very in-depth serious program for the wine professional or enthusiast. There is no other program like it and attaining the qualification should be a highly recognized achievement.

The program is excellent. It differs in format from many classes taught in that there is a real effort to give context to the regions through discussion of history as well as soils, topography, climate and grapes from each region. The class is not producer driven, but is terroir driven, and teaches students about France as a whole as well as the specific regions.

The online academy reinforced the study guide and added another perspective to my study plan. I felt as though the study guide and the online academy complemented each other in a way that made it easier to learn: if you are a visual person, the book covered everything. If you are an aural person, the online modules worked well.

The manual is very well laid out with pertinent information that goes beautifully hand in hand with the online program. It has given me a new appreciation and understanding of French wine. In fact, I am trying to use the information not only in my profession, but to add to my tasting experiences as well by purchasing a bottle from as many of the different AOC\'s as well! An excellent learning tool through and through. For anyone wanted to start a base knowledge and work their way to a rather thorough understanding of French wine and its laws, AOC\'s and characteristics of the wines themselves, this course has it all. Highly recommended for both newcomers and well seasoned wine students alike.
