The Wine Scholar Guild is an internationally recognized certification body for advanced wine learning for French, Italian, and Spanish Wines. Upon the completion and successful passing of respective examinations, the scholar receives a diploma, and the right to add the post nominals: FWS (French Wine Scholar), or IWS (Italian Wine Scholar) to their name. These programs are wonderful on their own, but also are great companions to other, broader certifications such as WSET L3 Diploma, or CMS Advanced.
