The Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology (ASVO) has announced the launch of a new scholarship to attend the AWRI Advanced Viticulture Course.

The scholarship is part of the ASVO’s Awards for Excellence program which are now recognised within the industry as a demonstration of expertise for wine industry professionals.

“Attending the AWRI Advanced Viticulture Course is a great opportunity to broaden your perspective on current best practices and future trends. Taking time out of your business to see how other vineyards in different regions face similar challenges such as soil, water and disease management can arm yourself with a broader skillset to embrace your own vineyard challenges,” said ASVO President Brooke Howell.

The ASVO Scholarship will be offered to one individual to attend the three-day intensive course travelling to selected sites across SA wine regions and meeting practitioners who are at the cutting-edge of Australian viticulture.

Due to current travel restrictions this scholarship can only be awarded to a member residing within South Australia. This course is administered by the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI).

Applications for the Scholarship open Monday 16 August 2021 and close Sunday 5 September 2021. Applications can be made either online or submitted via email. Eligible applicants must be members of the ASVO.

Further information is available at the ASVO website.
