IMW and FCV Spain master class, Spain – 26 and 27 May 2017


The Institute of Masters of Wine, in collaboration with La Fundación para la Cultura del Vino, is organising the fourth annual MW Master Class to be held in Spain.

Through its members and activities, the Institute promotes excellence, interaction and learning, across all sectors of the global wine community.

As part of its annual calendar of outreach events, the Institute organises workshops and master classes to introduce its study programme and examination through showcasing participants the MW approach to wine tasting and theory topics.

The Spanish programme will take place on 26 and 27 May 2017. A number of MWs, including Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW, Sarah Jane Evans MW, Norrel Robertson MW, Annette Scarfe MW, Lynne Coyle MW and Lenka Sedlackova MW, will be leading the programme, which will be run exclusively in English. They will explain the MW approach to the examination syllabus with a special focus on the writing and tasting skills required to become a Master of Wine. The class will include several tastings of different wines from different regions of the world as well as the dinner on Friday and other tasting opportunities led by MWs and producers.
