The Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) has revealed that Adelaide will host its next international symposium in 2022.
This will be the Institute’s 10th symposium and the four-day event will be co-hosted by Wine Australia, who has described this as “an unparalleled opportunity to network, taste and learn about wine from a rich variety of international speakers”.
Andreas Clark, CEO of Wine Australia said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting the world of wine in Adelaide in 2022 and look forward to showcasing Australia’s diverse and thriving wine scene, and our enviable epicurean culture. Australia’s creativity, passion and focus on innovation makes it the perfect destination to inspire leaders in wine and help shape the future of the industry.
Adrian Garforth MW, IMW’s Vice-Chairman, added: “The IMW Symposium is the most important event for the Institute every four years, and that’s not just because we invite other experts to discuss challenges, innovations and trends, but also because we relish the chance to meet and re-meet hundreds of friends and colleagues from across the international wine world.”
Jane Masters MW, the Institute’s Chairman, knows Australia can deliver an exceptional wine experience.
“I was one of a large group of Masters of Wine who visited Australia two years ago, and we are still talking about the extraordinary hospitality we received, and are also still remembering and discussing the diverse wines we tasted. It will be fascinating to see the evolution of Aussie wines since then,” Masters said.
