Marcia Waters MW, judge on the DWWA Italy panel in 2010
Marcia Waters MW has been in the wine trade for more than 25 years, mainly as a buyer, for Victoria Wine and Tesco, among others. She also had a spell of selling while running the UK offices of South African wineries Boschendal and Vergelegen. She worked for Lord Rothschild at Waddesdon Manor for 10 years where she was responsible for the wine range. Waters passed her MW in 1990 and has been involved with the Institute of Masters of Wine as a member of the education committee, council, and was its chairman in 1999/2000. Her new venture, MW2 Wines, is bringing all her contacts and experience together to sell a hand-selected range of wines from smaller producers that she feels are exciting and show what new things are happening in the world of wine today.
