Dermot Nolan MW

Dermot Nolan MW Dermot is a Master of Wine (MW) since 1997 and is, therefore, one of very few MWs in the world; the current active number can be found in the Excel file on our MW page. Since the MW Examination was first held in 1953 only 432 people have ever passed!

Dermot has worked in the wine trade since 1990, being involved in retail, buying and education since then. He has taught wine at all levels world-wide (and has taught most of the Irish wine trade at some stage!) and has also judged at a wide range of wine competitions.

The selection of wines reflects Dermot's experiences over the last 27 years. There will only ever be a small selection, with an emphasis on wines which have impressed Dermot over the years; hence a good representation from Australia, as well interesting wines from Europe, Chile and South Africa.
