The French Wine Scholar (FWS) program, created by the Wine Scholar Guild,  focusses solely on the wines of France. Lesser known regions such as the Jura and Savoy share the stage with the famous regions such as Bordeaux and Burgundy. Each session is supported by a tasting of regional wines. Individuals aiming for the Professional Sommelier Program wil find this course an excellent stepping stone to the next level.  Graduates that earn the FWS post-nominal designation are eligible for further study for Master Level Certificates. For a program overview visit the FWS main page for more detailed information. Although this is a challenging intermediate level program, there are no pre-requisites.

Duration: 3 classroom contact hours, once per week for 9 weeks (Wednesdays), plus a 100 question multiple choice exam on the 10th week.

Cost: $900 plus GST
