Ulf Sjödin became Sweden’s first Master of Wine. His normal day job (when not working on the MW exam) is marketing manager at V&S Wine, the wine division of the government owned wine importer and spirits producer V&S Group. After three years hard work he passed the three hurdles: the practical exam (read: wine tasting), the theoretical exam and a paper to be written on an individually chosen subject (Ulf chose, not surprisingly, to write on wine pricing in Sweden). Congratulations!
