Hatch Mansfield joins the IMW’s international supporter community

Published:  27 February, 2019

The Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) has announced Hatch Mansfield has joined its international supporter community.

The addition of Hatch Mansfield takes the total number of IMW’s international supporter community to 27 from all over the world, who all work jointly with the IMW to promote its "mission of excellence, interaction and learning" across all sectors of the global wine community.

Having had a long-standing relationship with Hatch Mansfield through the Villa Maria Group and previous supporters Viña Errazuriz and Louis Jadot, the IMW said it was “fantastic” to now have the company as an official upporter.

“They have contributed to the mission of the IMW supporting the MW study programme for many years, and Patrick McGrath MW has made a significant personal contribution to the IMW, from being a former chairman to the extraordinary Master of Wine Endowment Auction. We look forward to further developing our link with Hatch and the brands they represent,” said IMW chairman Adrian Garforth MW.

Formalising its commitment to the IMW had been a “natural decision”, said Patrick McGrath MW, managing director, Hatch Mansfield.

“Hatch Mansfield has always been a long term champion of the IMW through Errazuriz, Louis Jadot and Villa Maria and a number of our brands supported the Masters of Wine Endowment Auction in 2017, which raised over £1 million. We also have three MWs in our team, which is an impressive ratio for a business of our size. All of this made it a natural decision in 2019 to formalise our commitment to the IMW and we are delighted to become a Supporter.”

Established in 1994 with Louis Jadot, Errazuriz and Villa Maria and headed up by Patrick McGrath MW, Hatch Mansfield remains independent and today represents 16 international wine companies.
