Congratulations to Gonzalo Adolfo Ríos, FWS for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with the highest honors with the San Francisco Wine School!
''I love French culture in general and French wine in particular. Every day after a French Wine Scholar class, I would go to Kermit Lynch in Berkeley to explore the region we had just covered and to take a few bottles home for research. This study has benefited me in the restaurant environment where I have been a server for a few years now. I hope to one day work in a café or wine shop in Paris.
The French Wine Scholar was my first wine certification program. I plan to eventually take the Italian & Spanish Wine Scholar programs and the California Appellation course.
The French Wine Scholar program can only strengthen my standing as a French wine enthusiast and aspiring sommelier particularly when my travels take me back to France.''
