Family XII Tutorial - Congratulations Josh!

Congratulations to our Wellington based tutor Josh who was chosen to be one of the twelve Family XII 2019 tutorial participants this year. Places on the tutorial are extremely sought-after and, after two very rewarding days tasting some of the world’s greatest wines, Josh was awarded the ‘Institute of Masters of Wine Prize’. As the participant showing most promise for the Institute’s MW education programme Josh will travel to Adelaide, sponsored by the Institute, to the attend its annual educational seminar in November 2019.

Ronald moves to Master of Wine Stage 2

Congratulations to Ronald who passed the Institute of Masters of Wine Stage 1 Assessment and who now moves on to Stage Two. This is a tremendous achievement as the rigorous nature of the IMW Education programme means only those scoring highly in the June exams progress.
Ronald’s success is made all the more remarkable because :

  1. He lives in Oman with only limited access to wine.

  2. When he is able to purchase wine the cost is eye watering ( 100% tax on alcohol)

  3. Whenever we speak the temperature in Oman seems to be low 40Cs at best. Not exactly conducive to tasting.
