    I much prefer the format and information that the French Wine Scholar program has provided. It truly is a captivating book and is very easy to follow.

    Congratulations to Jeremy Horrell, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Jeremy:

    I am a wine professional. I have been working in the hospitality industry for over 11 years, focusing and working solely with wine the last 6 years. I am currently working as a Floor Somm at Astoria in Stockholm.  I got to this position by working hard within the industry and by working my way up in various restaurants around Bermuda, London, Edinburgh, Gothenburg, Stockholm, enrolling in wine programs and a lot of self study to become a sommelier.  I also worked in wine retail and wholesale to see the other side of the industry.

    I aspire to continue to work with wines of the world and hopefully have a place of my own one day, that being a small bistro or a whole sales wine company (haven’t made up my mind on a fixed plan just yet).  Working with wine producers that farm organically and biodynamically at a bare minimum. Lower intervention wines and producers that want to support the biodiversity on their farms. Very interested in wine producers that have a no tilling approach and support the regenerative agricultural movement at the moment like Nate Ready at Hiyu Farms.

    I have also completed and passed WSET 2 & 3. I much prefer the format and information that the French Wine Scholar program has provided. It truly is a captivating book and is very easy to follow. I would say also the French wine scholar has improved my knowledge of France and has given me the tools and confidence when talking about the history and AOC’s of France + all the varieties within France.

    I am planning on enrolling in one of the Master Level programs and I am leaning towards starting with Champagne.

    FWS has helped and is a great reminder why I love the world of wine and to never stop learning. Also, that there are so many ways to learn within this industry. You don’t have to always go down the path of CMS or WSET but the key is to keep an open mind and to better yourself the best way that suits you.
