Hosted by Master of Wine – Peter McCombie

Senior executives from the UK’s largest organisations are invited to join Chief Wine Officer and technology partners Equinix, Dropbox, New Relic, Global App Testing and IHS Markit, for the largest CWO event of the year. This VIP networking experience includes a gourmet four-course dining experience supported by a premium champagne and fine wine tasting experience hosted by an official Master of Wine.


The CWO Digital Leaders networking dinner attracts over 50 senior executives from leading UK institutions and with fantastic reviews from across the world since launching in 2005, these invite-only events are immensely popular.



Senior executives, those responsible for digital, from the world’s biggest organisations including finance, retail, media, gaming, manufacturing, technology and professional services.



You will be mixing business with pleasure – the serious business of fine wine tasting together with the pleasure of connecting with senior-level peers, colleagues and friends from leading institutions.



Your hosts for the evening include Chief Wine Officer and a number of their technology partners.


“It was one of those rare events that were both useful and enjoyable.”


We will mix business with pleasure: the serious business of fine wine tasting together with the pleasure of connecting with senior peers, colleagues and friends from leading UK organisations. Alongside the gourmet dinner, there will be a champagne reception and wine tasting, hosted by entertaining Master of Wine (the highest wine qualification, held by just 380 experts worldwide), Peter McCombie.

This part of the evening involves some light-hearted wine-related team competition, with the winner receiving the ultimate accolade – the Chief Wine Officer. The wine theme is ‘Australian A list’, take a classic grape variety produced in two wildly differing regions – one traditional, one unexpected – and compare the results.


Peter McCombie: Peter is a New Zealand-born, English resident Master of Wine, based in London. Peter McCombie was awarded the Master of Wine qualification in 1994, while working for Italian specialist merchant Winecellars.

“It was a very enjoyable evening, very informative both from a product and wine perspective and good fun. All-in-all a very good networking event.”
