The IMW adds Estates and Wines to international supporters

Published:  05 November, 2018

The Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) has added Estates and Wines to its international supporters community 

Estates and Wines – the wine division of Moët Hennessy – comprises a collection of wine estates around the world, each of which was born by pioneering founders seeking out "great terroirs to create exceptional wines".

In the Southern Hemisphere, they include Cloudy Bay in Marlborough and Cape Mentelle - one of the founding wineries in Margaret River, Australia.

In Mendoza, Terrazas de los Andes is a leader in high-altitude vineyards, as well as in the development of exporting world-class wines from Argentina since the 1990s.

Cheval des Andes is the Argentinian expression of Cheval Blanc, the only joint venture of this kind to which a Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé "A" gives its name. 

In the Napa Valley, Peter Newton’s vision to re-interpret French classics comes to life at the Newton estate on Spring Mountain. In Spain, Numanthia has put a spotlight on the Toro region and, most recently, Ao Yun has started a journey in the Himalayas, creating refined wines from the region.

The IMW and Estates and Wines shared a common drive to “promote excellence in the global wine industry”, said IMW chairman Adrian Garforth MW.  

“Many MWs will know a number of the wineries that sit within Estates and Wines, and we are delighted to start a more formal partnership with such a range of producers, and styles, and geographies.

Maggie Henriquez, p[resident of Estates and Wines, said, “We have had the pleasure of working with many students and MWs over the years and strongly believe in the continuous development of wine education as part of the evolution of the world of wine.” 

The IMW now has 29 Supporters from around the world, who work jointly with the IMW to promote its mission of excellence, interaction and learning across all sectors of the global wine community. 

Last week, the IMW added Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) to its international supporter community.
