    About Us

    About Us

    The Wine Scholar Guild is  the leading provider of French wine study and certification programs internationally.

    FWS courses of study range from the comprehensive French Wine Scholar certification program  covering all of France to in-depth Master-Level programs on specific wine regions within France.

    We are proud of the endorsement of FranceAgrimer (the National French Wine Office), Sud de France, the Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins du Languedoc (CIVL), the Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins de Roussillon (CIVR), Inter Oc, Air Sud, Bureau Interprofessionnel des Vins de Bourgogne (BIVB), Inter-Rhone, and the Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins de Provence (CIVP).

    Our goal is provide current, relevant and practical information on the wines and wine regions of France by offering  the opportunity for professional development and specialization through print, webinar, recorded lecture, live lecture, and study immersion trips to France plus classes with tutored tastings via our international program provider network.

    Our monthly member webinars, pronunciation exercises and quarterly member online quizzes keep our membership informed and up-to-date. Our forum and events provide our members some of the best networking in the wine industry.

    Our instructors include internationally recognized experts in their fields including Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and wine writers.

    Our members and students range from wine enthusiasts to wine industry professionals. But they all have two things in comment: they have a passion for French wines and are serious students of wine.
