Comgratulations to Janice Bergman Brown, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!
I am a bona fide wine enthusiast with a passion for languages, travel, wine, and learning.
I have passed the WSET level 2 exam for wine and spirits. The FWS program offered added substantial depth and focus to my knowledge of the great wines of France.
I plan to complete WSET level 3 and the Spanish Wine Scholar program. Preparation for the French Wine Scholar exam was rigorous. It helped me gain knowledge, confidence, and an increased appreciation for the complexity and beauty of the multiple aspects of French terroir, viticulture, and winemaking traditions.
If I decide to work part-time in the wine industry, the knowledge gained from the FWS program will surely be invaluable. In any case, my enjoyment of French wine and ability to advise friends and family has greatly increased since my FWS study.
