Congratulations to John Lis, FWS for passing successfully the French Wine Scholar exam with the highest honors, with Vendange Institute in Canada!
''I am a wine enthusiast and lifelong student of all things wine. I enjoy learning about the complete process from grape to glass. I am fascinated by the history, viticulture, production and marketing of wine, and of course tastings. Eventually, I plan to transition from an enthusiast to a wine professional.
In addition to the FWS, I have completed WSET Level 3 and the Italian Wine Scholar Unit 1. I eagerly await IWS Unit 2. I also have a Graduate Certificate in Wine Business Management from Niagara College. The FWS has delivered an in depth look at French wines and has expanded upon the foundation of my knowledge attained in other programs.
As I look to enter into the wine industry on a professional basis, the FWS and other programs provide the knowledge and credibility to ensure success.''
