The Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) is holding an MW Master Class open-day event in Sydney, with the aim of raising awareness of its study program in Australasia.
The IMW recently announced five new Masters of Wine, including Australian Miles Corish MW, and this Master Class will be hosted by a number of Australian-based Masters of Wine.
Meg Brodtmann MW, Ned Goodwin MW, Neil Hadley MW, David LeMire MW and Kym Milne MW will all aim to provide prospective students insights into the programme and what is involved in becoming a Master of Wine.
LeMire MW, said: "This will be a great chance to meet a number of local Masters of Wine and learn about the benefits that come with the title.
"We will be talking not just about the career benefits and opportunities for self-development that membership of the Institute brings, but also about the sheer fun and enjoyment of being part of a global network of like-minded people."
The Master Class will take place on 20 April at Prince Wine Store in Zetland, Sydney and costs $150 per person.
Penny Richards, IMW's executive director added: "We are delighted to present a Master Class in Sydney, the first in quite a long time. This is a brilliant opportunity for us to meet Australian wine professionals and for them to learn about the MW study program and what it means to be a Master of Wine."
The IMW is also holding a vintage 2010 Bordeaux tasting, featuring 60 wines, at the Radisson Blu Plaza on 19 April. Tickets for both events are available from Ticketbooth.com.au.
