Reh Kendermann Bursary Winners Announced
The Institute of Masters of Wine and Reh Kendermann GmbH are delighted to announce that Heather Miller and Patrick Schmitt are the recipients of this year’s prestigious Reh Kendermann Bursaries.
The bursaries, open to first and second year students in the Institute’s study programme, consist of two trips to Germany where the recipients visit Reh Kendermann GmbH, one of Germany’s most important wineries and ambassador for German wine, as well as other producers, either of the successful applicant’s own choice or selected by Reh Kendermann if the applicant prefers.
Heather and Patrick secured their bursaries on the strength of their essays addressing how Germany should take advantage of the current trend towards lower alcohol wines.
On behalf of Reh Kendermann, Alison Flemming MW, Export Sales Director said: “Germany is a truly remarkable wine producing country and presents MW students with vibrant and intriguing wines which are second to none. It is unthinkable for any ambitious student to omit the quality and elegance produced by Germany’s unique combination of cool climate, expert knowledge and modern winemaking. Heather and Patrick now have a great opportunity to increase their knowledge of German wines.”
Lynne Sherriff MW, Chairman of the Institute said: “We are very grateful to Reh Kendermann for providing this generous bursary. This is a superb opportunity for the recipients to develop their knowledge of German wines at first hand.”
