    25 French Wine Terms You Need To Know

    One could argue that France is the philosophical heart of fine wine. Much of what the world now does, from vineyard practices to winemaking techniques, can be traced back to the viticultural motherland. Here are some must-know terms for exploring the wines of France.

    Published in Blog

    Wine Scholar Guild's Education Director Lisa Airey speaks to events in the past that have shaped some of the regions.

    Published in Blog

    Wine Scholar Guild Education Director, Lisa M. Airey, CWE, FWS was knighted by the French government in a ceremony at the Embassy of France in Washington DC on March 28, 2018.

    She was inducted as “chevalier” to the Ordre du Mérite Agricole for her contributions to French agriculture (namely, wine!).

    Sylvain Maestracci, Agriculture Counselor, officiated. It was his first knighting ceremony and hard to tell who was more touched as the medal got close to the lapel.

    Lisa was commended for the development of the French Wine Scholar Program which is now taught by over 50 program providers, in 53 cities, in 16 countries on 5 continents. It is also hosted as an online program in independent- and instructor-led formats.

    The Truth about TCA with Lisa Airey CWE, FWS

    • Discover the history of this wine taint, how it is created, how it is transferred, how it has been eradicated.
    • Truth be told, “cork taint” is actually a misnomer. Although cork acts as a powerful sponge for this volatile aroma, cardboard, paper and other wood products carry it too!

    Learn the facts. Be informed. Not every off-aroma is TCA.

    Photosynthesis with Lisa Airey, CWE, FWS

    The basic principal is that of simple alchemy: the vine turns sunlight into wine. Yet there are a host of variables that impact the production of sugar in the leaf, the translocation of those sugars to the grape and the ripening of the fruit. Several key growing season variables impact sugar production.

    Learn how clouds, wind and temperature determine “just how sweet is all is”…in the end.

    • Ever wonder how those hints of green bean, bell pepper, jalapeño and celery stick got into the wine?
    • It’s a fascinating story of insatiable, greedy-gut pirating, Mother Nature’s  grand design for consummate fertility and the vigneron’s attempt to farm for flavor.  Guess who wins?
