I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Victorian Wine Show travel scholarship to be awarded for the first time at the 2017 Presentation of Awards ceremony.
This scholarship, to the value of $8000, will fund travel and accommodation for a Victorian winemaker or grapegrower who wishes to investigate a particular variety, region or technique. On return, the knowledge gained will be made available to the entire Victorian wine industry.
I encourage all Victorian winemakers, viticulturists and grapegrowers to consider applying for this scholarship or bringing it to the attention of a Victorian wine industry member who you think should apply.
It is a unique opportunity to further your knowledge and to benefit the Victorian wine industry as a whole.
Robert Paul, Director Victorian Wines Show
