Congratulations to Fabio Lobosco, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!
I spend half of my time as a criminal lawyer and college teacher at Law School, and half of my time as a teacher and wine consultant. When I was studying for my Master Degree in Political and Economy Law I started my first sommelier course at a local institution. When I was studying for my PhD in Law, I also started to focus more on wine knowledge.
I´ve studied at Wine & Spirits Education Trust from level 1 to 4 (Diploma) in wine, level 1 for spirits and now coursing level 1 in sake. Also took a sommelier course at a local Brazilian institution named Senac, in São Paulo – SP. FWS added a lot to my previous wine studies, first because it was more focused and detailed in the France wine scenario. Second, it was a different approach, that expanded my comprehension.
I´m giving a break now. I´ll start an extension of Law PhD decree soon, and aiming at the Italian Wine program of FWS…so hope to comeback soon.
