I am going through the FWS online program and just wanted to say that you did a wonderful job with the e-learning modules! Very detailed, well-explained and overall very professionally done. Thank you very much for an awesome training, and kudos to Lisa Airey for her work on this. I'm enjoying it very much and learning a lot. Thank you for all your great work!

Thank you for developing top notch online courses that are both foundational and fun. These courses not only allow me to bolster the academic side of my wine pursuits but enhance my subjective enjoyment of wine as well. I especially like that I can work at my own pace, check my progress with the online quizzes, and delve as deep as I want into the many aspects of French wine, all while being guided by passionate and informed instructors. To anyone looking for a way to learn more about French wine, these courses are a great value. Well done French Wine Society.

The online academy reinforced the study guide and added another perspective to my study plan. I felt as though the study guide and the online academy complemented each other in a way that made it easier to learn: if you are a visual person, the book covered everything. If you are an aural person, the online modules worked well.

This online program is superb. It is extremely comprehensive, covering the different regions in detail but is perfectly paced to make retaining the information really easy. The online format and 24/7 availability really lets you fit this around your own schedule and the extra webinars that come with it are a lot of fun. As a way to prepare for the French Wine Scholar exam, it's outstanding; as a way to expand your knowledge of French Wine, it's unsurpassed.
