French, Italian, & Spanish Wine Scholar Certifications
Wine Scholar Guild
Cellar Muse is the approved provider for the Wine Scholar Guild certification programs. Tanya provides both the French Wine Scholar, The Italian Wine Scholar, and Spanish Wine Scholar certification programs for in-class learning and testing in Washington State. Wine Scholar Guild programs are respectively the most comprehensive formal study programs available bar none. The materials are comprehensive, thoughtfully and beautifully compiled, plus they are updated every year to reflect the ever changing nature of wine law.
These programs are wonderful on their own, but also are great companions to other, broader certifications such as WSET L3, Diploma, or CMS Advanced, for the professional who wants to specialize, or the enthusiast who wants to deepen their intimate knowledge of their most beloved wines.
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.
