Masters of Winemaking tasting

12 September 2018 , 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM  | London

Come and relish an extraordinary rare showcase of wines made by Masters of Wine from around the globe. 

This walk-around tasting, is not only a celebration of the international nature of the Institute of Masters of Wine but also of the specialised talents of a number of its Members. MW winemaking expertise from Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and the United States will be on show.

For those who attended the Living Wine Symposium this will be a revisit of the wines from the tasting on day one and your opportunity to explore these further*. And if you weren’t able to attend the Symposium, here is your chance to sample the incredible wines on show. This tasting is open to the public to attend. 

The IMW has a sizeable number of winemakers and viticulturists amongst the membership. Two of the first to join the IMW, Michael Hill-Smith MW (Australia, 1988) and Olivier Humbrecht MW (France, 1989), are amongst those whose wines will be available at this tasting.

The tasting allows you to enjoy 60 wines from a wide range of geographies and winemaking approaches.
