The wait is over: Master of Wine results

September 6th 2011

After three months of waiting, this year’s Master of Wine results finally arrived in our inboxes last night.

There was heart pounding, a little bit of sweating and shaking as I opened the email. But when you see ‘I am very pleased to tell you that you have been awarded a PASS IN THE THEORY,’  the sense of relief is enormous. I couldn’t face going through that again!

I passed the white tasting paper with a B and narrowly missed out on tasting papers 2 & 3 with a C+ and C-  but this year was all about theory and, I am expecting to drink a lot of bubbles this week.

It’s a far cry from my first ever MW essay when I got an E. I called my mum up to tell her I’d got an E because it was the first one in my life! Talk about a steep learning curve!

There are 11 new Masters of Wine today who have passed both exams and the dissertation so well done to them. We’d all like to be in that position.

Study partner, Richard Hemming who works for Jancis Robinson, has also passed his theory so well done to him. If you don’t know him, you’ve got to see this youtube video. It’s hilarious.
