The Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) is thrilled to announce that Bottlebooks, based in Munich, Germany, has joined its international supporter community. Bottlebooks’ cutting-edge wine data management technology will be used to provide producer-entered product information at the IMW’s symposium in Wiesbaden this year, as well as within the MW study programme.
The Institute of Masters of Wine is a highly respected organisation that is dedicated to promoting excellence, interaction and learning across all sectors of the global wine industry. Its members (Masters of Wine) are among the most qualified and experienced wine professionals in the world.

About the Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW)
The IMW is a membership organisation with an exceptional international reputation. For almost 70 years, its members – the Masters of Wine (MWs) – have been at the forefront of leadership and expertise in the world of wine. The IMW’s mission is to promote excellence, interaction and learning across all sectors of the global wine community. MWs prove their comprehensive understanding of wine by passing the MW exam, recognised worldwide for its rigour and exacting standards. In addition to passing the exam, members must sign the code of conduct before they are entitled to use the initials MW. This requires them to uphold the highest standards of commercial conduct within the industry. Today, there are 416 Masters of Wine working in 31 countries. The membership encompasses winemakers, sommeliers, buyers, journalists, shippers, consultants, viticulturalists, academics, educators and more. There are 349 students from 40 countries in the 2022-23 MW study programme. The IMW works with 34 supporters and two research and industry associates, who help promote the IMW’s mission. The five principal supporters are Austrian Wine, AXA Millésimes, Constellation Brands, the Madame Bollinger Foundation, and Waitrose and Partners.
The Bottlebooks platform standardises and streamlines the collection of wine information for distribution and events. Bottlebooks is the most widely used data platform for the wine industry globally, and recently added support for creating e-labels. It is used by leading retailers and distributors, as well as many national generic bodies and wine events.
