    Frank De Staebel, FWS, Wine Enthusiast
    Other certifications: WSET Levels 2 & 3

    Congratulations to Frank De Staebel, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors with WineWise, Belgium. 

    About Frank:

    I’m a wine enthusiast. The passion started with a friend (he’s got a wine shop) and so I started reading and drinking wine. Since a few years ago I started collecting wine in my small wine cellar. It happens that I’m ‘travelling’ in my cellar thinking about a journey, holidays, gastronomy, …

    So here we go.  My certifications are:
    WSET Level 3 – Award in Wines
    Unit 1- Theory (Pass With distinction) (2020)
    Unit 2 – Tasting ( Pass With Merit) (2020)
    WSET Level 2 – Award in Wines and Spirits – 96 %    (2019)
    SYNTRA
    Education Winemaker – Winegrower ( 2012-2014) - passed
    CVO STAD GENT
    Education Wine Connaisseur (2007 – 2009)
    Various modules: wine knowledge - applied wine knowledge - wine tasting - gastronomy and wine - beverage knowledge - award (83%)

    I’m interested in the Spanish wines but maybe in October. 

    My dream is to teach wine for starting sommeliers or wine enthusiasts.
