We are proud to announce that Maisons Marques Et Domaines have become a Corporate Patron of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.
MMD has become the 45th partner amongst an illustrious list of brands in WSET’s Corporate Patrons programme. The Corporate Patrons programme ensures that WSET receives essential funding to continue to develop its world class courses and qualifications.
As the UK Agent for Domaines Schlumberger, MMD has also linked WSET with Domaines Schlumberger to offer the new Alsace Crus et Terroirs Scholarship for a WSET Level 4 Diploma graduate. A study visit to Alsace as a guest of the Alsace Crus et Terroirs Association and its associate members will be awarded to an outstanding graduate from the UK wine and spirit trade. The scholarship will be awarded for the first time at the Awards and Graduation ceremony in January 2017.
Ian Harris, CEO of WSET, says, “With MMD’s support as a WSET Corporate Patron, both our organisations can benefit from a closer working relationship. The introduction to Domaines Schlumberger for the new Alsace Crus Terroirs Scholarship is a great first step, and a welcome new addition to our roster of awards that aim to celebrate and nurture talent in the industry. MMD joins a growing list of companies that value education across their business, and we very much appreciate their support.”
Richard Billett, Managing Director of MMD, says, “MMD is delighted to become a corporate patron of the WSET. As a business we recognise the increasingly important role of education and training for both the trade and consumer and are therefore very pleased to extend our involvement with the WSET and support the great work and value that it delivers as the leading global wine and spirit educator.”
