Industry endorsements

The French Wine Scholar program is the only program in the USA endorsed by the French Wine Office.

It also has wine industry recognition stateside as well.

Below are a few of the many testimonies we have received:



"Education is sales. I fully embrace this program. It is significant in its depth and breadth. I have been involved in French wines for a long time and am delighted to see such an educational initiative finally materialize. It is long over-due"

"Education is the cornerstone of wine appreciation. With the French Wine Scholar study and certification program, the French Wine Society provides priceless support to the trade and consumers alike. We cannot thank them enough for their total dedication and enduring commitment."

Xavier Barlier, VP Marketing & Communication, Maisons Marques & Domaines




“The French Wine Scholar study manual will be a great tool for anybody interested in learning about French Wines whether their goal is to acquire a diploma or not. We thought it would be great to have copies of this manual distributed amongst our sales force. ”

"We are very excited to launch the new advanced level “French Wine Scholar” certification program through the French Wine Society at Glazers Louisiana in 2010.  Advanced education and professional wine certification are important for our industry to provide knowledge and support for the trade as well for the consumer.  Pam Connors our Director of Training and Wine Educator will be leading the FWS Certification process in Louisiana.  We are happy to embrace this program and look forward to working with the French Wine Society."

Andy Halpern, President, Glazers Louisiana




“The French Wine Scholar study manual is really terrific! You should be really proud of it. I have learned six dozens things from it… As a matter of fact, I’m including many of the things I learned into my own presentations on France. I can’t wait to pass the exam and teach the program to our staff.”
