Master of Wine is a title that you can win after having gone through a lengthy education and training and having passed a gruelling examination. But it is a title that carries a lot of prestige in the wine world. In the latest round of examinations eleven candidates managed to gain the title which brings the number of MWs up to 300.
It is of course quite an Anglo-Saxon thing this with MW (the Institute of Masters of Wine being very British) which also shows if you look at the origin of the new MWs:
- Michele Anderson MW (Australian living in USA)
- Christy Canterbury MW (USA national and resident)
- Sam Caporn MW (UK national and resident)
- Mary Gorman-McAdams MW (Irish living in USA)
- Andy Howard MW (UK national and resident)
- Emma Jenkins MW (New Zealand national and resident)
- Richard Kershaw MW (British living in South Africa)
- Paul Liversedge MW (British living in Switzerland)
- Caro Maurer MW (German national and resident)
- Mai Tanaka MW (Japanese living in UK)
- Clem Yates MW (UK national and resident)
We say a very big congratulations to all the new Masters of Wine!
