Of the new MWs, two are American, two British, one German and one Swedish, with four women and two men. In the last ten years almost 50% of new Masters of Wine have been women.

Penny Richards, executive director of the Institute, said: “We are thrilled to welcome these outstanding individuals; their diligence and commitment to excellence will be great assets to our community, as will their diversity.

“Results day is always one of the most emotional in the Institute’s calendar, full of triumphs and disappointments. We’d like to offer congratulations to all those who sat the Master of Wine examination in June, whatever their results. We had our greatest-ever number of candidates, and overall results for the theory examination were the best we’ve ever seen.”
