13 New Masters of Wine

Seven men and six women, with eight countries represented, taking the number of Masters of Wine worldwide to 353 in 28 countries.

This crop of successful candidates join the five new Masters of Wine that were announced earlier this year, which included the organisation’s first members from the Czech Republic, Malaysia and Israel.

The notoriously tough Masters of Wine Examination consists of three stages, including theory and practical Exams, and culminates in the submission of a final research paper – an in-depth study on a wine related topic from any area of the sciences, arts, humanities, or social sciences.

The 13 new Masters of Wine are:

  • Fongyee Walker (USA)
  • Richard Ballantyne (UK)
  • Bree Boskov (Australia)
  • Barbara Boyle (Ireland)
  • Matt Deller MW (USA)
  • Matthew Forster (UK)
  • Sonal Holland (India)
  • Jeremy Lithgow (UK)
  • Mary Margaret McCamic (USA)
  • Iain Munson (France)
  • Mick O’Connell (Ireland)
  • Mark Pygott (Taiwan)
  • Ana-Emilia Sapungiu (UK)
