The Institute Worldwide
The Institute is an international organisation with members resident in 23 different countries. The Institute has its administrative office in London and runs its study programme, examination and events around the world in locations including mainland Europe, North America and Australia.
In North America there is a separate company to which all Masters of Wine automatically also belong, the Institute of Masters of Wine (North America) Limited. This is a not-for-profit educational company and, as such, may attract tax deductible donations from United States companies and individuals, using the money to fund its wine education activities in the region.
