Congratulations to Tommasella Perniciaro, FWS for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with honors!
''I was born as a wine enthusiast, participating in some wine tastings in Madrid, Spain, where I currently live. I soon understood that wine was going to be my real passion and I made all the efforts to know more about it. So I decided to enroll onto the WSET Level 2 Award in Wine & Spirits as I was looking for an international certificate that could gave me a worldwide approach. Level 3 and Level 4 followed suit. And in the meanwhile what was a simple passion became a job. I am a wine educator now and I teach WSET courses in Madrid and on line as a tutor for the WSET London School. I also organize wine tastings for private customers and companies and write for some national and international wine blogs, including my own (thegoodwinehabit.com). Of course, you never stop learning in wine and, in fact, I am a Master of Wine student now, having started my new adventure this October. I hope someday to teach the FWS course as well!
I took WSET Level 2, Level 3 and Diploma Award in Wine and Spirits. Taking the FWS program was really helpful in tuning my knowledge about French wine regions and wines. It gave me a deeper insight and a more comprehensive vision about this key wine producing region.
I am currently an MW student. I have enrolled last October 2016 and I hope to get through the program successfully. Of course, the FWS course will contribute to my future wine studies in terms of supporting knowledge and insight about the French wine styles and characteristics of the single wine producing regions.
Now that I have passed the FWS program successfully I feel even more confident in organizing French wine tastings. I will be able to give FWS courses in the future as well and this will be a really great opportunity for my teaching career.''
