Masters of the Wine Universe

The Institute of Masters of Wine has announced 8 new members, bringing the total count to 312. The 3-part Master exam requires candidates to pass theory and practical portions before presenting a dissertation to the Institute.

Two points of interest: this year saw the first successful completion of the exam by a Turkish candidate (Dilek Caner MW) and Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchant, Berry Bros. & Rudd, congratulated two additional members (Anne McHale MW and Demetri Walters MW) of its staff for their achievement. BBR now employs 8 MWs, while this is a much more important title to UK professionals 8 is an embarrassment of riches.
