14 new MWs announced

The Institute of Masters of Wine has named 14 new MWs, taking the total of people to hold the prestigious title worldwide to 369.

Institute of Masters of Wine logoThe new members of the Institute of Masters of Wine were announced this morning, with four from the UK and five from the US, as well as Norway, Spain and Hong Kong. The latest crop of successful MW students join the four announced in March of this year. There are now 369 MWS living in 29 countries. 

The notoriously tough Masters of Wine Examination consists of three stages, including theory and practical exams, and culminates in the submission of a final research paper – an in-depth study on a wine related topic from any area of the sciences, arts, humanities, or social sciences.

In addition to passing the examination, all MWs are required to sign the Code of Conduct before they are entitled to use the initials MW. The Code of Conduct requires MWs to act with honesty and integrity, and use every opportunity to share their understanding of wine with others.

You can see the four new members over the following pages, including biographies and the titles of their research papers.

Congratulations to the new members from all of us at the drinks business.
