“We are pleased to be continuing our sponsorship with the IMW for another three years,” Banke said.

“We have a longstanding commitment to education and believe that our mission – to make the world’s best wines, from the best vineyards, crafted by hand with integrity – corresponds with the institute’s promotion of excellence, interaction and learning across all sectors of the global wine community.”

Jane Masters MW, chairman of the IMW, added: “Jackson Family Wines has been an active Supporter of the Institute from the day they joined us.

“They organised a lunch at our International Symposium in Florence in 2014, received a large group of MWs at their Yangarra vineyard in McLaren Vale last year and host our students during the Study Programme Seminar in San Francisco every year.

“We are delighted they will remain part of our Supporter family.”
