    The event will be hosted by Konstantinos Lazarakis MW, the only Greek Master of Wine, and Sarah Jane Evans MW, the Institute's Deputy Vice Chairman.

    The topics to be covered in the master class will include an introduction to the Institute's study programme and the structure of the Masters of Wine Examination, covering both theory and practical issues, and a blind tasting of wines to highlight the Master of Wine approach to tasting and assessing wines.

More than 280 students from 29 different countries are currently enrolled in the Institute's international study programme, which prepares candidates for the annual Masters of Wine Examination.

    The master class runs from 4pm to 8pm on 5 December 2011 at WSPC, 2nd Floor, 70 Amfitheas Avenue, Palaio Faliro 175 64, Athens, Greece.

    The itinerary for the first-ever visit to Greece includes tours and taste-testings in wine-producing regions and wineries in Attica, the Peloponnese, northern Greece and Santorini, and more specifically visits to Nemea, Naoussa, Epanomi, Amyntaio, Attica and Santorini. Extensive presentations will take place of the wines of each region of Greece the IMW will visit.

    [02] KKE must become 'all-weather' party

    ANA/MPA-- The new leader of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Dimitris Koutsoumbas said that a new beginning must be made within the continuity of the great experience the party has acquired in the last 20 years, so as to meet the demands of the recent 19th Congress that is encapsulated in the phrase "We must become an all-weather party", in an interview appearing Sunday in the Rizospastis newspaper.

    He explained that the phrase meant that the KKE is capable of fighting under whatever circumstances aiming to gather forces, prepare for the moment when the class struggle will put the issue of the conquest of power by the working class with the support or tolerance of other alliances of popular strata enters the daily agenda for their permanent disengagement from exploitation and suppression.

    It also meant a KKE capable of responding to attacks by the opponent and contribute to the labor movement.

    He noted that the KKE's position is that "socialism is the only realistic path for abolition of exploitation, for the reactionary class that is currently in power and exercises a modern-day dictatorship of the monopolies to become a thing of the past, and he listed a number of fundamental popular needs that will be solved with socialism, including the disengagement from the imperialistic alliances of the EU, NATO and the IMF that "tighten the noose around the neck of the working class and the other poor and oppressed".
