    Paulo Brammer, FWS

    Paulo Brammer, FWS
    My constant pursuit of perfecting my knowledge has made my FWS studies pleasing and complementary.
    Paulo Brammer, FWS, Founder Director, Eno Cultura, São Paulo, Brazil
    Other certifications: Certified Wine Educator, WSET Diploma

    Congratulations to Paulo Brammer, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Paulo

    I started my beverage career in London as head of bars, and then became head sommelier for the three Michelin-starred chefs Pourcel Brothers. In 2008, I made the move out of fine dining to take on a new challenge as chief wine buyer at ETM Group. During my term, ETM Group was awarded Best Group Drinks Offer (Harpers Magazine), Pub company of the year (Restaurant Magazine) and Best UK Bar and Pub Group (Caterer Magazine). I was also nominated Pub Personality of the Year (Imbibe Awards).


    In 2013, I co-founded Eno Cultura, a wine and spirits academy headquartered in Brazil with activities all over LATAM. The academy has been making its presence at the cutting edge of wine and spirits research, spreading self-made content through workshops, masterclasses and officially certified advanced courses on several wine regions. International certifications are also provided, such as WSET courses (levels 1, 2, 3 and hopefully soon the Diploma) and the French Wine Scholar, as well as consultancy services worldwide. Eno Cultura was awarded Educator of the Year 2017 by WSET Global.


    I have recently become wine educator by the Consejo Regulador of both Jerez and Rioja.  I am currently a wine judge at the Decanter World Wine Awards and the International Wine and Spirit Competition.  My studies for previous certifications and my constant pursuit of perfecting my knowledge have made my FWS studies pleasing and complementary.
    These are some of the certifications I have gained since I began my studies on wines and spirits:
    -    Universidad de la Rioja - Certified Wine Educator (2018)
    -    Consejo Regulador de la D.O. Jerez - Certified Wine Educator (2018)
    -    University of California, Davis - Us Wine Trade (2015)
    -    Wine & Spirit Education Trust - Diploma, Wines and Spirits (2012)

    My passion for wine along with the knowledge acquired in the FWS program makes me want to learn and know more about wines and specific regions and gives me a technical endorsement to increase my ability to disseminate knowledge to my students.
