Congratulations to Seong Hee Ahn, FWS, for achieving highest honors in the French Wine Scholar exam with the WSA Wine Academy, Seoul, Korea
About Seong Hee:
I used to travel through wine countries for work and personal trips, and my biggest joy was sharing with friends the wines I brought back and experiences I have encountered from the countries I have traveled to. COVID-19 changed the travel scene, hence instead of travel, I decided to explore what I am passionate about as much as travel – wine. Learning wine was a life-changing experience as it greatly enhanced how much I appreciate wine, thus, enriched my life; it’s not just drinking but sharing the history, culture, efforts, passion, stories of a bottle.
I have been certified with the WSET level 2 and 3 Award in Wines, and the FWS program has perfectly complemented the WSET programs and hugely expanded what I have cultivated in the studies. I hope to further my wine studies in the IWS program and hopefully in WSET Diploma.
FWS is by far the most intense wine program on French wine. It contains in-depth integrated information on the French wine and wine region including its culture and history which helped me to enhance not only my knowledge but deepen my passion for wine and the culture of France. I aspire to explore the wine regions of France myself when the travel is back post-COVID-19.
