    Congratulations to Yan Yan Li, FWS for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors with our program provider AWSEC in Hong Kong.

    About Yan Yan Li:

    ''I started my encounter with wine in 2008 when I joined an interest class by chance. Since then, I was attracted by the taste, the smell and the magic in pairing food and wine, as well as the wide variety in the horizon of wine. When one has passion in something, one will want to know and learn more. Therefore, I started my wine journey by taking the WSET and FWS course, participating in wine tasting events, as well as joining different wine festivals and expos.

    I have obtained the WSET Level 3 Award right before joining the FWS program. The FWS program has deepened my understanding and knowledge on the French wine, which I have the most interest. Beside the grape variety and the appellation, I have learnt more about the history, the topography, the viticultural and vinification practice, the wine industry and wine style of each wine producing region in France, as well as the relationship between the terroir, the vine and the wine. I would like to explore more on some specific regions like Bordeaux, Bourgogne, Alsace and Provence by enrolling in some particular Master-Level Programs.  But before that, I am now considering obtaining the WSET Level 4 Diploma qualification, and this certainly will require a lot of time and effort.

    The FWS program has adopted a systematic approach to organize the particulars of each wine producing region, which makes one easier to understand and remember the information. It has also related the viticulture and vinification with the history, topography and the terroir of a region, which makes the whole wine stuff a more interesting and "romantic" story. The FWS program has strengthened my interest and passion in wine studies. Although I am not a wine professional, I would like to pursue more, particularly on French wine. But in my opinion, learning in lessons where you can discuss and taste the wine is far more interesting. The e-learning material can then help one to revise the lessons. I will keep an eye on the courses offered for the Master-Level Programs in future.''
