Berkmann's Wine Cellars

Alex Hunt MW

The Institute of Masters of Wine announced nine new MWs following the 2010 examination, bringing the total number of MWs in the world to 289. At just short of 31, Hunt is amongst the youngest in this exclusive club.

The examination is notoriously tough, and in order to pass, candidates must both pass theory and practical parts of the examination as well as researching and writing a 10,000-word dissertation.
