I’m Lawrence Francis, Host of Interpreting Wine the place to learn from thought leaders in the world of wine and marketing, welcoming you to the MW Student Series series.
Across these 4 episodes exploring the personal and professional experiences of four current MW students, with the aim to shine a light on the varied roles each has within the wine industry. In each episode we’ll also be tasting a selection of wines that have a special significance to each of them.
We continue the series in the company Luke Harbor, Head Sommelier of The Pig in the South Downs. His episode is a brilliant exploration of his entry into the wine industry developing and working his way through various roles to his current position.
Luke completed the WSET Diploma in 2020, qualified WSET educator and leads THE PIG’s wine education across the group. More recently, he was awarded the IWSC’s prize for emerging talent in hospitality in April 2021 and started the Master of Wine programme in September 2021.
