  This FRENCH WINE SCHOLAR course, developed by the Wine Scholar Guild, is an in-depth, internationally accredited course supported by the French Ministry of Agriculture and delivered under license from the USA.

It was originally designed for members of the wine trade but also suits the wine enthusiast who has a WSET level 3 Award in Wines or equivalent knowledge.

Study with us for 6 Mondays from July 24 in an alternating day (face-to-face) and evening (live but recorded online) format.

The class time, predominately used for tasting the wines, is supported by a great text book, excellent videos, webinars and other useful online resources.

The topics covered are the history, culture, geology, climate and the viniculture techniques that have shaped the wines of these regions: Alsace, Beaujolais, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Corsica, The Jura, Languedoc, The Loire Valley, Provence, The Rhône Valley, Roussillon, Savoie and Southwest France. The food traditions of each region are also featured (although not examined).

Content is assessed by a multiple choice theory exam on September 11. Successful candidates receive a certificate and lapel pin.

Cost: $1250. Wines, text, access to online materials and the exam fee are included.

Detailed information about the course content is available at https://www.winescholarguild.org/france/french-wine-scholar/program-overview.html
