    I use what I’ve learned in the FWS on a daily basis, and I would highly recommend the FWS to those of whom want a comprehensive knowledge of the most important region in the world.

    Congratulations to Kathy Phillips, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Kathy:
    I’m a lifelong hospitality professional. I got my start 30 years ago working for a Michelin Star chef who served classic French cuisine. Time and space doesn’t permit a full recounting of all my F&B experience; however, I must report that working for over a decade on Maui for The Four Seasons was a highlight of my career.


    I’ve passed The Court of Master Sommeliers level 1, and I’m preparing to take the level 2 sometime in 2019. I think the FWS course is in and by itself a fabulous stand-alone course that is in a class all by itself. And, of course, the FWS helped me tremendously in preparing for not only the Court of Master Sommeliers examination, but also the Hospitality Beverage Specialist (a program through the Society of Wine Educators) that I just recently completed.
    I’m also currently enrolled and studying for the WSET 2. So the FWS is a very big help in that regard.  

    France is the most important wine growing region in the world. French history, viticulture,  innovation, tradition and the terroir is second to none. It is paramount for any wine professional or oenophile to have an in depth understanding and a firm grasp on France.   I use what I’ve learned in the FWS on a daily basis, and I would highly recommend the FWS to those of whom want a comprehensive knowledge of the most important region in the world.
