A new feature for Master of Wine Students


We’re launching new feature that we think will be really valuable for MW students and that is free to all. Over the coming months, we’ll be offering you the chance to have your questions put to a range of winemakers and we will publish the answers on our website. 

South Africa

We put your questions to winemakers in South Africa and have now published the replies from the first two, Anthony Hamilton Russell, owner of Hamilton Russell Wines from the Hemel-En-Aarde valley and Matthew Copling, Winemaker at Vondeling Wines, Paardeberg. Both go into useful detail and provide lots of examples which we think will be very useful for MW students. Click on the link.

There are more to come from other SA producers and we will let you know as soon as they are published. 

Loire, Franken, Wurttemberg and Rheingau

Following recent trips we have made, we will soon be putting questions to producers from these regions. Send any questions that you would like to include to
