Who is this program for?

The French Wine Scholar Program covers French wine law, grape varieties, viticulture, winemaking and all of the French wine regions. This core body of knowledge is important whether you sell wine, buy wine or teach about wine.

The FWS program allows wine enthusiast and professionals to set themselves apart from their peers by specializing in the wines of France.

It is a great resource and supplement for students of wine moving toward advanced general wine study programs such as WSET® Diploma, Master of Wine program, Court of Master Sommeliers’ Advanced Sommelier (and up) or Certified Wine Educator.

Why becoming a French Wine Master?

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

Many reference France as the benchmark for wine production. But this is not just because of the quality and quantity of wines it produces. This long-standing reputation is due to the fact that internationally recognized grape varieties of high caliber such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are all native to France!

By studying French wine, the student gains a deeper appreciation for the grape and its travels and a reference point for Old World/New World comparisons.

Online Course Structure

The live program will take 8 consecutive weeks (Wednesdays) starting on October 28th, 2020.

Test will be scheduled at Vitis House.  Vitis House will provide several options during the year.
