Master of Wine Mock Class

MWM Wine School has introduced a bi-weekly series of 12-bottle tastings, presented in the style of Masters of Wine mock exams.  It offers the ideal opportunity to taste under exam conditions, and prepare students for the rigorous exams they will inevitably face as part of the MW studies.

Debra is actively involved in wine selection and examination questions. And although a post-tasting tutorial or debriefing by Debra is not part of this series, Debra is often in the office during the tastings, and if so, she will generally drop in to comment and mentor on a voluntary basis (given her widely-known passion for teaching!).
