MW Study Programme Wines 2016-2017

28 Jul 17


The Institute of Masters of Wine would like to thank all those who generously supplied wines to the 2016-17 MW Study Programme. The wines were featured at over 30 Course Days throughout the academic year and at five residential Seminars in Adelaide (Australia), San Francisco (USA), Rust (Austria), Bordeaux (France) and Berkshire (UK).

Both the Course Days and Seminars were attended by MW students from 40 countries, and by over 80 Masters of Wine. The wines were used for tastings and mock exams which guide students’ preparation for both the Stage 1 Assessment and the MW Examination.

In June this year 150 students sat the MW Examination and over 90 students took the Stage 1 Assessment in London, San Francisco and Sydney. There are over 340 students from around the world on the Study Programme.

The supply of the below wines ensures the Institute can continue to offer the best possible experience to students on their journey to becoming a Master of Wine.

Notes to Editors:
The Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) is a professional body with an unsurpassed international reputation. The Masters of Wine (MWs) hold the most respected title in the world of wine. The Institute promotes excellence, interaction and learning across all sectors of the global wine community. MWs have proved their understanding of all aspects of wine by passing the MW Examination, recognised worldwide for its rigour and high standards. In addition to passing the Examination, MWs are required to sign the Code of Conduct before they are entitled to the initials MW. The Code of Conduct requires MWs to act with honesty and integrity, and use every opportunity to share their understanding of wine with others. There are 355 Masters of Wine today, working in 29 countries. The Membership encompasses winemakers, buyers, journalists, shippers, business owners, consultants, academics, and wine educators. There are over 340 students in the MW Study Programme from 40 countries.
