John Parisi, FWS

Congratulations to John Parisi, FWS for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with honors with the Sydney Wine Academy!

About John:

''I have been a wine enthusiast for some 30 years, having tasted and collected wine from all over the world.  After retiring from my business (retail / wholesale fresh produce) I decided to formalize my wine education in preparation for a career in the wine industry.

My other wine certifications and completed courses are WSET Level 2, and Level 3. Italian Wine Scholar unit 1. I am currently enrolled WEST Diploma of Wine and spirits.  I believe the FWS course allowed me to build upon my previous learning in greater detail particularly the lesser know regions of France which are all covered in the course.  I see FWS course to be a valuable supplement to the WSET diploma that I am currently enrolled. The specific detail of the FWS content gives a great base for the knowledge needed for the French unit of the WSET diploma.

My passion for French wine has been enhanced by the exposure to previously less known regions, grape varieties and wine styles produced in France. My successful completion of the course has also given me the confidence to pursue higher wine education and a career in wine.''
