04 September, 2017

The Institute of Masters of Wine has added 14 new MWs from five countries, including four from the UK.

The latest additions join the four announced in March this year, taking the total number of MWs to 369, living in 29 countries.

The Masters of Wine exam, which is known for being extremely tough, comprises a mix of theory and practical exams as well as a final research paper.

Four of the 14 new MWs are from the UK, including Alastair Cooper MW, a wine consultant; Philip Harden MW, who specialises in fine wine investments; Tim Jackson MW, a marketing director in financial services who also runs corporate wine tasting events; and Catherine Petrie MW, buying and marketing manager for Burgundy and Bordeaux fine wine merchant, Goedhuis & Co.

In addition to the four from the UK, five of the new MWs come from the US, as well as Norway, Hong Kong and Spain.
