Jesús Enrique De las Heras Roger awarded the 2017 La Fundación para la Cultura del Vino Scholarship
La Fundación para la Cultura del Vino (FCV) has awarded its third scholarship for Master of Wine students to Jesús Enrique De las Heras Roger. Jesús, the Technical Director of the Tenerife Wine Laboratory is registered to start his MW student journey on the 2017/2018 MW Study Programme, after passing the entrance examination in 2016.
Jesús will receive 4,000€ towards fees, tastings, travel and other costs needed for the programme, as well as a working trip to some of FCV’s wineries.
The scholarship was open to Spain-based and Spanish nationality MW students who submitted a 1,000-word essay: The image of Spanish fine wines in the world; discuss the key factors required to improve it.
On receiving the award Jesús said, “I’m very grateful to the Foundation and greatly appreciate their support with this amazing scholarship. I personally met Masters of Wine last year at the Spain Masterclass through the Foundation. I realised there how interesting the MW Study Programme was and how it perfectly suits my professional expectations. I am looking forward to starting this September…I can’t stop thinking about how exciting it is going to be and how many things I’m going to learn!”
Rafael del Rey, FCV General Manager said, “We are delighted to work with the Institute and offer this scholarship again. Jesus’ essay stood out as the winner because he wrote a fantastic paper regarding the improvement of the Spanish premium wines in international markets. We hope more Spain based students join the MW Study Programme in the future – especially with the 9th International Symposium which will be held in Logroño in June 2018.”
