The Institute of Masters of Wine is the home of exceptional expertise in the wine world. What started 70 years ago as an exam for the UK wine trade is now a globally recognised title collectively held by a worldwide family of Masters of Wine. Today, there are over 416 MWs based in 31 countries, each making their own contribution to the world of wine. Becoming an MW means entering a unique wine community; one that brings enriching personal and professional opportunities, as well as lifelong friendships.

The “DipWSET,” or Diploma in Wines and Spirits, is a prestigious Level 4 qualification offered by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). This comprehensive program is designed for wine and spirits professionals, as well as serious enthusiasts, who are eager to deepen their knowledge and expertise.

Through rigorous coursework and examinations, students explore a wide range of topics, including viticulture, vinification, wine regions, spirits production, and global wine markets. Upon successful completion, graduates are equipped with an advanced understanding of the wine and spirits industry, allowing them to excel in their careers and become respected authorities in the field.
