We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2015/16 Derouet Jameson Award. Andrea Schmidt (Oddbins) and Elizabeth Pearce (Majestic) were both identified as outstanding candidates by the Wine & Spirits Education Trust and were awarded scholarships by Grania Gregson (daughter of Tim Derouet) at the Guildhall on 18 January 2016.
The Masters of Wine announced the award in their latest newsletter (link):
“The Derouet-Jameson Memorial Foundation, which is one of the largest charitable sponsors of Wine Trade education in the country, will provide their application and first year study fees for the course starting in January 2017.”
We look forward to supporting them both through their studies.
