Four new Masters of Wine named

Four new Masters of Wine have been named and include the first MW of Mexican descent.

Martin is the first Master of Wine of Mexican descent and a first-generation American

The new members of the Institute of Masters of Wine – two from the USA and two from the UK – are Cassidy Dart MW, Caroline Hermann MW, Simon Milroy MW and Martin Reyes MW. There are now 370 Masters of Wine living in 28 countries.

The new members have proved their understanding of all aspects of wine by passing the Master of Wine examination, recognised worldwide for its rigour and high standards. The MW 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 MW 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 to use every opportunity to share their understanding of wine with others.

See below for a biography on each of the new MWs, and the topic of their research papers.

And very, very well done to the first MWs of 2018 from all of us at the drinks business.
