    Congratulations to José Luiz Ferrazzo Neto, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About José:
    At the beginning I was just a wine drinker, as my whole family, to honor our Italian descendance. In 2005 I went to Spain to walk the “Camino de Santiago” or “Way to St. James”, and wine became my true passion. Dozens of wine courses and eno-trips introduced me to WSET. Level 1, 2, 3 and 4…...finally DIP WSET. I´ve sold my company and totally changed my life. Started working for British Berkmann Wine Cellars in Brasil, become wine educator in Enocultura and after a year in wine business Im totally happy working as a general manager for Portus Importer, one of the greatest and oldest importers in Brasil.  My passion for French wine leads me to FWS and what a great pleasure studying and having such a great grade. Italy and Spain will be next steps for sure.

    I did many small wine courses in ABS (brasilian somm association) but my biggest tittle is WSET level 4 that I finished this year. Now that I finished my FWS I realized that would have been great to have this graduation before my WSET exams (would have helped a lot). As my plan is to be accepted to the MW program, my next step will be IWS and SWS.

    FWS will not just “open doors” for me as a French wine educator. FWS, and the whole Wine Scholar Guild, will keep me updated…..and being updated is just the best thing you can do in the wine world if you want to succeed!!
