    Other certifications: Italian Wine Scholar

    Congratulations to Jen McAlpine, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

     

    About Jen:

    My love for wine has taken me to some amazing places! Aside from working as a sommelier over the years, I also took a year off to travel and explore some major wine regions, and even did a harvest in Australia. However, it was when we were travelling through Burgundy and Champagne that something ignited in me and I’m excited to see where that leads me!

    This year I finished Italian Wine Scholar, French Wine Scholar, and enrolled in the WSET Diploma program, so it’s been a busy year! The Wine Scholar Guild programs have no doubt been beneficial in preparing me for the WSET Diploma and whatever future wine studies I decide to take on. Continuing with WSG is definitely on the list!

    I’m excited to see where I go next in my career.  Up until now I’ve been in restaurants but I think I’m ready for a new challenge. Whatever that may be, FWS has exceeded my expectations and allowed me to feel prepared for whatever comes next.  As far as education goes, my focus now is on the WSET diploma, but without a doubt I’ll be taking some of the master level programs with WSG as soon as I can!
