3rd January, 2017 by Patrick Schmitt

The Institute of Masters of Wine has moved into new headquarters in London’s Riverlight Quay development by the Thames in Vauxhall.

Riverlight Quays is part of an extensive area of redevelopment close to the new American and Dutch Embassies

The office, which is within a recently-completed riverfront residential development in the Nine Elms area, has been bought by the Institute (IMW), giving the educational body a permanent place in London – it was leasing offices in Fitzrovia before the move.

The new space gives the IMW an events space large enough for seated tastings for 45 people, a wine storage and preparation area, and a separate meeting room for Masters of Wine.

As previously reported by the drinks business, the site is within a new building that is part of an extensive area of redevelopment close to the new American and Dutch Embassies. Significantly, the new office is twice the size of the IMW’s former space in Fitzroy Square.

The IMW was able to purchase the new office thanks to an Endowment Fund, and the move into the permanent HQ marks a “significant step in the growth of the Institute of Masters of Wine,” according to past chairman of the Institute, Sarah Jane Evans MW.

    It’s the IMW Endowment Fund created by MWs and supporters for just such an instance.
