Our team

KEDGE Wine School is a team who works daily to guarantee its students a path of excellence.

The programme team, composed of 7 people, relies on a team of teacher-researchers to train future managers in the food, wine, spirits, restaurant, hotel and tourism sectors.

Jérémy Cukierman MW

Master of Wine since 2017 and holder of the WSET Diploma since 2012, Jeremy Cukierman is KEDGE Wine School director. He has been working for nearly fifteen years with more than 200 winemakers from France and abroad. He started his career in the wine world as a wine merchant, with boutiques in Paris, and an event agency. As a consultant for private clients and companies in the wine industry, he writes for the French magazine Vigneron and the Italian magazine Civiltà del Bere. He is also the author of "Vignerons Essentiels", a book that has already been awarded several literary prizes.

Master of Wine is the most prestigious distinction in the world of wine. This extremely selective examination includes a series of blind tastings (36 wines), a theoretical part (14 essays) and a 'research paper'. A Master of Wine must be able to deal with the issues of viticulture as well as the marketing and sociology of wine. There are currently only 409 Masters of Wine in the world. Jeremy Cukierman is one of the seven French Masters of Wine. He has also won the Madame Bollinger medal for his excellent results in the Masters of Wine Institute's tasting exam.
