Pushing his limits, exploring new businesses and never stopping learning has characterised his entire life. That’s why Thomas went for Master of Wine. As John F. Kennedy put it in his famous speech: Why fly to the moon? Not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard. By the way, fewer people have achieved the Master of Wine title than have gone into space.
Striving for the extraordinary has also characterised his career in wine. In 2019, Thomas became a Master of Wine (MW), the most respected title in the wine world. He is one of just 409 MWs based in 30 countries – nine of which are in Germany (as of January 2020). Thomas was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award of the Institute Masters of Wine thanks to the best overall results of his vintage.
