WINE SCHOLAR GUILD WINE IMMERSION STUDY TRIPS AUTUMN 2017 
OFFER COMPLETE WINE EDUCATION EXPERIENCE



Wine Scholar Guild, formerly French Wine Society, has announced its autumn 2017 schedule of week-long study trips. 

Each trip offers an intensive, professional-level educational program in the wine region. The Wine Scholar Guild (WSG) is the only organization to offer this complete tutored wine tour program.  Participants come away not only with memories of a lifetime, but a thorough understanding of the region as well. The trips are led by internationally-renowned experts such as Andrew Jefford (Decanter Magazine)Wink LorchEssi Avellan MWGerard Basset MW MSJane Hunt MWKerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast Magazine) and Pascaline Lepeltier MS

Julien Camus, WSG President, explains “We are pleased to not only offer another opportunity to explore Champagne, one of our most popular study trip destinations, but the WSG is also expanding its destinations to include France’s Jura and Loire regions. These trips give participants an insider immersion in the regions, their wines and culture in a way that text books cannot provide. Our autumn trips are selling quickly, with many repeat registrations from previous guests… a sign that the WSG is truly delivering a unique wine tour experience.”

The trips include extensive high-caliber wine tastings at some of the best estates of each region. They are nearly all-inclusive, including full-comfort hotels, gourmet meals with great wines, all winery tours and tastings, and deluxe ground transportation. Prices range from US $3695 to $4490 per person, double occupancy, and each trip is limited to just 18 guests (15 for Jura).
