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 :
He lives in Oman with only limited access to wine.
When he is able to purchase wine the cost is eye watering ( 100% tax on alcohol)
Whenever we speak the temperature in Oman seems to be low 40Cs at best. Not exactly conducive to tasting.
