Syllabus Topics

The Master of Wine Theory exam contains five papers which encompass the world and business of wine, from viticulture through production, handling, storage, shipping, distribution, sales, marketing and contemporary issues.  We break the syllabus down into bite sized videos that provide an introduction to a topic, an overview of the main themes and a guide to topic specific vocabulary and tips for using smart examples.

A new video will be added every few weeks, eventually building up to 150 films that will cover all the topics in the MW syllabus.
