What is the Wine Scholar Guild?

The Guild provides study & certification programs on the wines and wine regions of France, Italy and Spain.

Originally created as the French Wine Society, the organization quickly became the leading provider of French wine study and certification programs internationally.

 

In order to accommodate wine industry requests for equally detailed study programs on Italy and Spain, the French Wine Society reorganized as the Wine Scholar Guild.

Wine & Spirit IQ is proud to bring the following programs to Thailand.

Become a French Wine Scholar!

The French Wine Scholar™ Study and Certification program provides current, accurate and in-depth information on the wines and wine regions of France. 

Developed and administrated by the Wine Scholar Guild with the support of the French Ministry of Agriculture, this specialization program is designed for advanced students of wine, whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists.

Students who follow this in-depth curriculum and pass the exam will earn the French Wine Scholar™ (FWS) post-nominal (e.g. John Smith, FWS).

WHO IS THE PROGRAM FOR?

The French Wine Scholar™ program is designed for both professionals and enthusiasts.  It is a great resource and supplement for learners of wine moving toward the advanced wine programs from the CMS, CWE, WSET or MW. While not a pre-requisite, we recommend that candidates successfully complete at least the first level of one of these programs before enrolling the FWS program.

All learners of wine eventually discover France. Some use it as the starting point to begin their wine journey while others arrive in France after having sampled the wines of other countries.  There is a world within French wine and wine styles of France have certainly impacted the entire wine world.

France is the botanic birth place of the most commercially significant grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah to name a few.  Therefore, by studying French wine, learners build a strong foundation of knowledge from which to expand at will.
