Australian winemakers including Noon and Shaw + Smith are among 36 Master of Wine winemakers who will present their wines at a tasting at the 10th International MW Symposium in Wiesbaden, Germany, from 29 June to 2 July.

The walkaround event, named ‘Taste the Mastery’, will be the first tasting to kick off the symposium, which will be attended by 500 wine professionals and enthusiasts from around the world.

“With a global community of 415 MWs, only 76 consider themselves winemakers, making the session a rare occasion, providing symposium guests with an opportunity to explore the exceptional talent of MW winemakers from around the world, all in one room,” the Institute of Masters of Wine says.

Alison Flemming MW says, “At the 10th IMW Symposium a cherished tradition will be continued: the tasting of wines made by Masters of Wine.

“A selection of MW winemakers from around the world will be present to demonstrate their skills and expertise with their wines on the first day of the event.

“Visitors can expect to taste MW made wines from nations spanning France, Spain, Australia, United States, Austria, South Africa, Israel, Germany, England, and Canada.

“Many of these regions have grappled with the effects of climate emergencies in recent years, from wildfires in the US and the recent flooding of the Ahr valley in Germany.”

The line up of the 36 MW winemakers who will present their wines in Germany:

The International Symposium is regarded as one of the marque events in the global wine calendar, launching in Oxford in 1982 and last hosted in Logroño, Spain, in 2018.

Returning for 2023, the 10th symposium will run over four stimulating days, focusing on trends currently defining the industry and how the industry will evolve in the future.

Attendees can expect world-class tastings, thought-provoking presentations and controversial debate touching on themes from the impact of climate change to diversity in the wine industry.
