Top people moves in drinks: February

Six new Masters of Wine named

The Institute of Masters of Wine announced six new Masters of Wine, from six different countries last month, taking the total number of people to hold the title worldwide to 384.

The new Masters of Wine are Edouard Baijot MW (France), Nicholas Jackson MW (USA), Brendan Jansen MW (Australia), Jonas Röjerman MW (Sweden), Harriet Tindal MW (Ireland – above) and Jonas Tofterup MW (Spain).

The MW examination consists of three stages 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.

There are now 384 MWs in the world, based in 30 countries. The new MWs will be formally welcomed to the IMW at a ceremony in London later this year.
