A new home for the Institute
The Institute of Masters of Wine has announced it is to buy its own permanent Headquarters, and will be moving in December 2016. The new office will be in Vauxhall, London, on the south bank of the River Thames close to the historic Battersea Power Station.
Twice the size of the existing space in Fitzroy Square, the new Headquarters will host many of the Institute’s events, as well as providing a tailor made space to hold study days for its global body of students throughout the year. In addition, Masters of Wine will have a space to call home in London.
By establishing a permanent base, the move reflects the Institute’s confidence in its future, and the need to look after its growing Membership and student body. Next week the Institute will hold its annual examinations, when a record number of students will be tested on their understanding of many facets in the world of wine.
Sarah Jane Evans MW, Chairman of the Institute said:
‘This is a significant step in the growth of the Institute of Masters of Wine. It shows just how much we have grown, and highlights our ambitions for the future in continuing to promote excellence, interaction and learning. These purpose-built offices will enable us to give our Members and students worldwide more effective support, and to welcome the wider wine community.’
