    Congratulations to Megan Barone, FWS, for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with honors with NorthWest Wine Academy in Seattle !

    About Megan Barone

    "I've been a Francophile since childhood, and a wine enthusiast since I was old enough to drink (though I grew up in the California food/wine industry, so honestly forever)! I've been with Trader Joe's for 13.5 years, and have begun to transition into the importing/distribution side of things.

    The FWS was the first wine certification I pursued, and I found the program to be thorough and rigorous, yet easy to follow and absorb. I've been able to better educate my crew and customers about French wine since the course -- and have accepted a position with a boutique importer of French wines since completing the course. The education the Wine Scholar Guild provided, along with the support and expertise of the instructor, Regina Daigneault has given me the skills and confidence to pursue my growth in the wine industry.  

    I am presently pursuing a degree in wine business from the Northwest Wine Academy, where I will most definitely be taking the Italian Wine Scholar course when it is offered in the spring. The FWS program was a perfect intro into the world of wine certifications for me! The format, book, and online modules were so helpful in absorbing all of the information and fully UNDERSTANDING French wine, as opposed to just memorization of facts. I can only hope that the other certification programs are this well set up. I am thankful to have had the experience, which has opened up a new world to me. I can't wait for IWS in 2018!"

    WSG thanks the following organizations for their support:
