The French Wine Society has teamed up with TheWineHub
The French Wine Society has teamed up with TheWineHub to give you a sneak preview of the types of questions you’ll find on the French Wine Scholar exam.
Starting on September 2, 2009 and running for five consecutive Wednesdays, www.thewinehub.com will be posting a special French-themed quiz in addition to its regular weekly 10-question wine world challenge.
The content for these questions is taken from the French Wine Scholar study manual, a 250-page, full-color, spiral-bound book of study written and researched by the Washington D.C.-based French Wine Society and vetted and endorsed by Viniflhor (the National French Wine Office).
The manual is linked to the French Wine Scholar certification program, a program designed to validate proficiency in the wines and wine regions of France for members of the wine trade. The inaugural exam will take place October 5, 2009 at the French Embassy on the first day of the French Wine Society annual conference.
The exam consists of 100 multiple-choice questions. Those candidates that pass the exam with a score of 75 or higher will earn the French Wine Scholar (FWS) post-nominal. Those that pass the exam with a score of 80 or higher will be qualified to teach the program.
For more information on the exam and conference log on to www.frenchwinesociety.org
The French Wine Societ y will gift a free study manual and exam sit (worth $250) to TheWineHub wine professional who scores the highest on this five-week pre-conference French quiz series. The winning candidate can sit the French Wine Scholar exam this October or opt to defer to next year.
