Advanced Wine Assessment Course opportunity

The 2017 ASVO Scholarship to attend the Advanced Wine Assessment Course (AWAC) administered by the Australian Wine Research institute (AWRI) is now open for applications. The ASVO Scholarship is a nationally competitive scholarship which offers high-achieving individuals an opportunity to undertake vocational or professional development in wine assessment.

The ASVO Scholarship is part of the highly valued ASVO Awards for Excellence program which has attracted a high calibre of entrants and are now recognised within the industry as a demonstration of expertise for wine industry professionals to aspire to and achieve.

The ASVO awards aim to promote excellence through recognition and reward of high achievers in innovative practice; those who are striving to raise practice standards and, individuals who, through their professionalism, provide a model of practice which others seek to emulate.

The ASVO scholarship will be offered to one talented individual to attend the AWRI’s highly regarded, four-day intensive Advanced Wine Assessment Course.

Last year’s recipient Stewart Byrne from Josef Chromy Wines said “I feel incredibly fortunate to have attended the 41st AWAC, and I will carry the skills and knowledge that I have gained from this course throughout my career in the wine industry. I would like to thank the ASVO for the opportunity to attend, and I strongly encourage all aspiring show judges, or individuals looking to refine their tasting skills to apply.”

Applications are online, open to all fields of study and there is no age limit for applicants. 

Applications for the 2017 Scholarship open 1 May and close on Friday 23 June 2017.
