    The program was truly enjoyable and an excellent way to endure the Covid lockdown!
    Hardy Peter Wallace, FWS, Wine Enthusiast
    Other certifications: WSET Level 3

    Congratulations to Hardy Peter Wallace, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar with highest honors!

    About Hardy:

    I am a wine enthusiast. Having loved wines all of my adult life, when I retired from the business world, I decided I had the time to devote to learning as much as possible about wines, viticulture and vinification. I was also encouraged in this pursuit by my son who is an accomplished wine maker.

    I have been following the WSET program and have passed Level 3. I am enrolled in the WSET Diploma Program and was about to sit for D1 in March of 2020 but Covid quickly put that on hold and made travelling for the exams impractical due to my age, quarantine restrictions, etc.  I was in search of alternatives that did not require in person exams and offered distance learning. Wine Scholar Guild filled that need so I enrolled in the French Wine Scholar Program. I must say, I have been quite pleased. The instruction was excellent, and the program offered a deeper dive into the wines and wine regions of France. The program was truly enjoyable and an excellent way to endure the Covid lockdown!

    Going forward I will continue with my WSET studies and I have also enrolled in the Italian Wine Scholar Course.
