GLOBAL WINE ACADEMY
Build the Skill, Logic, and Confidence
to Become a Master of Wine
Jim and Christine have worked together to create an online educational experience that will allow you to work at your own pace, master new skills, and apply them to improve your Master of Wine Practical Exam technique.
There are three stand-alone courses based on the major types of questions found on the MW Practical Exam:
Variety and Origin
Quality and Winemaking
Style, Commercial, and Maturity
In an online video, Christine, the 2019 Bollinger Medal Winner, and Jim discuss tasting calibration, explore practical examination question styles, and walk you through how to get as many points as possible in the practical examination.
Who is it for?
MW Students of all levels who would like help with their Practical Exam skills and people interested in the MW who want to learn how to taste and analyse like a Master of Wine.
When is it?
Students can complete the video and offline sessions at their convenience. They will have access to the video for 6 weeks from the time of first viewing.
This is an online course that has been designed by experienced educators to make the most of the online education format. It is not a 12 wine timed paper. It is an immersive educational experience. You will be expected, during the course of the videos to revise specific elements assigned to you and then to resume the online session.
Working together, we will build your Master of Wine exam skills and you will learn how to get the most out of the wines that you come across during your MW journey.
How it works
Christine and Jim, have recorded training sessions with two MW students which you will be able to access through Zoom. The total recorded time of the video is between 4-6 hours, depending on which video. Please note, however, that depending on how many tasks you undertake, the total work time could be up to 8 hours. The equivalent timing is similar to participating in a course spanning one working day.
Wines + Video Option
If you choose the video + wine option then the 12 wines will be sent to you. Samples will last approximately 6 weeks, as they are bottled under Argon.
Video Only Option
If you choose the video only option, a list of suggested wines will be sent to you for a helper to source for you, so you can taste them blind.
