    I feel like French Wine Scholar has given me a comprehensive understanding of the different wine regions of France
    David Larsson, FWS, Wine Enthusiast

    Congratulations to David Larsson, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About David:

    I am a wine enthusiast living in Sweden and I have had a special interest in French wine for about 8 years. I have spent time in several French wine regions while on vacation. A few years ago my wife and I spent about a month volunteer working with a small producer in Le-Puy-Notre-Dame, and we really fell in love with the Loire Valley.

    French Wine Scholar was my first formal wine education program. Before I started the program I thought myself to already have quite a good knowledge on French wine. However I was very impressed with the study material, which, being very well structured and informative, really helped me to categorize and deepen my knowledge. I feel like French Wine Scholar has given me a comprehensive understanding of the different wine regions of France (even the more obscure ones). In addition I felt I really progressed in my wine tasting skills during the program. I have already looked at possibly taking the Italian Wine Scholar or Spanish Wine Scholar program. I will definitely continue using my newfound knowledge and skills back home as I have recently joined a local wine society. I'm also very much looking forward to applying my knowledge in practice on our next trip to France this summer!
