Our Director of Education, Robert McNulty, has just returned from another intense week judging at Decanter Magazine’s World Wine Awards (#DWWA2018) in London. The world’s biggest wine competition attracted 17000 individual entries this year. Wines are judged by teams of experts from across the world, incredibly diverse panels.
Robert said “An invaluable week from an experience point of view. Not only do you have the opportunity to taste widely and see the latest trends emerge, the chance to learn from so many leading experts in their field is priceless. Judging with a range of MW’s, MS’s, leading journalists and members of the wider business is energising. The organisation by Decanter Magazine and their team is faultless giving judges the time to properly work their way through flights. It’s an intense week and one that I am fortunate to be part of.”
For the judges participating, many with regional specialities, a common factor is a world knowledge of wine in order to offer fair comparison. As the specialist English language WSETglobal Programme Provider in Italy we look forward to building our students skills, giving them the opportunity to share their knowledge and participate at events like this in the future.
