Barossa Young Viticulturist Fellowship 2006

Barossa Young Viticulturist Fellowship 2006

The Barossa Viticulture Technical Group, in conjunction with sponsors Elders, Barossa Grapegrowers’ Vine Selection Society and Wine Barossa, seeks to expand the experience and involvement of young viticulturists and grape growers to ensure the future sustainability and competitiveness of the Barossa Wine Industry. To achieve this, a Fellowship Award has been established with applications now being sought.

$10,000 funding is available to cover travel and project related costs to enable an individual to undertake a project or area of study that broadens their knowledge and experience and provides benefits to the Barossa Wine Industry.

Applications need to demonstrate the applicant’s passion for viticulture, learning and the Barossa region.

The Fellowship winner will be required to devote some time to sponsors via seminars, trade days and contribute to the BVTG committee.

To be eligible applicants need to be between 18 and 35 years of age and be working or involved in the Barossa wine industry.

Applications for the 2006 Fellowship close September 1st.

Three finalists will be selected to attend the 2006 Barossa Wine Show Dinner on September 21st where the inaugural winner will be announced.
