Masterclasses and Information Sessions

Every year and around the world the Institute of Masters of Wine holds Masterclasses and Information Sessions to raise awareness of its study programme and to provide information to prospective students. Masterclasses offer a two day introduction to the Study Programme, with MW-led tastings and Theory sessions. Information sessions are around an hour in length and provide an overview of the Study Programme and an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the Institute and the MW Study Programme.
