Many wine-lovers harbour a hidden dream of giving up their day-jobs and moving to one of Australia’s most picturesque wine regions to make a living hand-crafting stunning wines … but with little experience where do you start?
The team at Kirrihill Wines is offering one lucky individual the opportunity to experience the 2010 vintage with them in the Clare Valley.
Becoming part of the hard working vintage team, they will embark on a behind-the-scenes wine adventure, under the guidance of Kirrihill’s winemakers Donna Stephens and Marnie Roberts.
Whether it be the start of a new career path or simply a fun and informative holiday, this fantastic week-long sojourn, open to anyone residing in Australia, will have lots to offer, covering the ins and outs of winemaking including vineyard visits, fruit crushing and pressing, tastings with the winemaking team and learning about fermentation control.
The overall prize includes flights within Australia to Kirrihill in the Clare Valley and accommodation.
Kirrihill Wines winemaker Donna Stephens an experience like this does not happen very often.
"This is someone’s chance to explore their passion for wine and make their dreams come true, no experience necessary," she said.
"The team are looking forward to welcoming an enthusiastic individual to one of the most beautiful parts of Australia in the New Year.”
