The 56 early-career professionals from across the wine industry who will participate in the 2023 Wine Industry Mentor Program have been announced.

Industry partners; Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology, the University of Adelaide, Wine Australia, Wine Industry Suppliers Association, and Wine Communicators of Australia said they were delighted with the strong interest in the program having received 130 applications, and noted the diversity and impressive quality of all applicants.

The successful candidates – including wine marketers, winemakers, viticulturists, researchers, wine students, wine retailers and sommeliers – will be mentored by some of the most respected leaders from across the Australian grape and wine sector, who are passionate about the future of the Australian wine industry.

The full list of the mentees accepted into the 2023 program is available here.

As well as learning from their mentors, the mentees will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded peers, grow their confidence and skills and be inspired to be the best that they can be.

The application process saw the mentees specify what they wanted to achieve through the mentoring and they will now work with their matched mentors using this as the basis of their objectives over the coming months.

The program will see participants building their knowledge through genuine connections with experienced industry professionals from 1 June until the end of November.

The program partners thank the mentors who are giving their time willingly and voluntarily to support and foster the growth of the Australian wine sector.
