Congratulations to Ana Borges, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!
I’ve been working with wine for 11 years now, having come from the restaurant business. I now work as a wine consultant for importers and retailers and as an educator for Eno Cultura (WSET and FWS). I am currently planting my own vineyard and hope to become a wine producer in a few years.
Other than FWS, I have WSET from level 1 to Diploma, and I also have a Masters degree in Oenology in Spain. France has always been a bit scary for me, especially Bourgogne, but after FWS I have come to understand and make sense of it, even teaching others about the region!
FWS has given me more confidence in my teaching position, even opening up more opportunities for me. I hope to take the Italian and Spanish Wine Scholar programs soon.
