Masters of Wine information session

By , 14 February 2022

The Institute of Master of Wine is holding an information session to be hosted by Cathy van Zyl MW later this month in Stellenbosch.

The Institute is the home of exceptional expertise in the wine world. What started more than 65 years ago as an exam for the UK wine trade is now a globally recognised title – today there are 418 MWs based in 30 countries.

This information session will explain the role and function of the Institute of Masters of Wine, as well as explain the MW approach to the exam syllabus with a special focus on the writing and tasting skills required to become a Master of Wine. The session will end with an optional guided blind tasting of three wines.

This session is aimed at people considering the MW programme within the next year or so. It is recommended for WSET Diploma students and graduates, Cape Wine Masters, qualified winemakers and any highly motivated wine professional who believes MW is the next step for his or her career and personal development.
