    Ji Seong Lee, FWS
    The FWS program has given me the power to decipher the story behind each wine label. I believe that the knowledge the program has given me will serve as a guide to the uncharted wonders of the wine world.
    Ji Seong Lee, FWS, Wine Enthusiast
    Other certifications: WSET Level 2

    Congratulations to Ji Seong Lee, FWS, for achieving highest honors in the French Wine Scholar exam with Winevision Academy, South Korea

    About Ji Seong:

    I am just a wine enthusiast.  In fact, it’s been not so long since I fell in love with wines.  Back in my time in the US as a college student, I came to know the charm of wines.

    There are hundreds of wines in even the smallest wine shop and more than hundred thousand wine brands worldwide.  And yet, every time I visited a wine shop or a restaurant, only those wines that I have knowledge of caught my eye and the rest simply slipped by me.  That was when I realized that in order to fully appreciate the wide range of wines that exist in the world, I needed some sort of education.

    I have previously received the certification for the WSET program. WSET program gave an ample overall background on wine studies, but the FWS program has given me an in-depth knowledge on French wine-making regions, along with the grape varieties and the wines made in each of these regions.

    Being a wine enthusiast and nothing more, I am planning to focus more on tasting quality wines now, but if time allows, I would consider taking the IWS certification program.

    My main goal of “learning” is to give a proper appreciation to what I experience.  In a single bottle of wine, there is history, philosophy, literature, science, and most importantly, aroma and flavor.  The FWS program has given me the power to decipher the story behind each wine label.  I believe that the knowledge the program has given me will serve as a guide to the uncharted wonders of the wine world of my own.
