Applications for the 2009 Lorenzo Galli Scholarship were received from sommeliers, retailers, winemakers, and other wine professionals from every mainland State in Australia. Applicants had to submit an essay on a choice of topic related to Italian and Italian style wines in Australia. Many of the hundreds of applications were of a very high standard, but the judging panel has selected just 17 people to go through to the Master Class being held in Melbourne on the 19th and 20th January. One of those finalists will be selected to receive the Lorenzo Galli Scholarship, consisting of a fully paid $10,000 trip to Italy.
L'Erudito Programme 2009 is an initiative aimed at educating young sommeliers and wine retailers about Italian wines and Italian style wines in Australia. The programme consists of a weekend of master classes lead by eminent Italian wine expert Michael Trembath, wine writer Jane Faulkner, and The Wine Guide’s Dan Sims.
The highest scoring participant in the programme will be awarded the Lorenzo Galli Scholarship, which consists of a fully paid trip to Italy valued at $10,000.
The L’Erudito programme is open to anyone working either in hospitality or wine retail who is a permanent Australian resident.
