French Wine Scholar
I was always so confused by all the different wine regions, grapes, and labels in France but I love French wines. This course made sense of it all and taught me the about the most important wines and we tasted some amazing ones! I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in France and it is especially useful if you are about to do the WSET level 3.
