    Congratulations to Anne Richter Arnold, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Anne:

    I became interested in knowing more about wine during my travels in Europe, especially in France and Portugal. The experience of drinking local wines, the history, the different growing methods and styles all fascinated me!...and I wanted to learn more.  As a professional writer, I decided to start using my skills to share information about wine, so I just recently started my wine blog and education site, fromthevinetowine.com.  Once the pandemic is over I hope to hold classes and wine tastings.  A French friend I met in Champagne, also WSET 3 and a wine journalist, and I are working on a guide to the Champagne region focused on and for women.

    In 2019,  I started with WSET 2, then continued to WSET 3.  When the pandemic delayed my test, I decided to use my free time to learn more. Last year I became a Certified Specialist of Wine and French Wine Scholar.  Currently I am in the WSET Diploma program and working on my thesis exploring wine and climate change.  I am also studying for my Champagne Master Level exam to gain more knowledge for the Champagne guide I am cowriting.  I hope to continue on to study Alsace and create a guide for that region in the future.  My goal is to complete all the French Master Level courses!

    The French Wine Scholar program has been such a great way to expand and enhance my knowledge base.  The expertise  the FWS program provides is unlike any other and also one of the most easy to use as an online platform as well as enjoyable.   French wine can be confusing and daunting to many, so I hope to be able to take the mystery out of it in my writing and classes so that people can enjoy it.
