Shaw + Smith launch wine scholarships in Asia
The inaugural Shaw + Smith Scholarship will launch in Hong Kong and Singapore in March 2018, a continuation of Shaw + Smith’s ongoing support of wine education.
The first scholarship recipients will join Shaw + Smith for a week at their Adelaide Hills winery, for a taste of harvest 2019. They will gain first-hand experience of a working winery, along with time in the vineyards and in-depth regional and varietal tastings.
Following from this, the winners will head south to Tasmania to visit the Tolpuddle Vineyard in the Coal River Valley.
The Shaw + Smith Scholars will receive return airfares to Australia, five nights of accommodation in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia, two nights of accommodation in Hobart, Tasmania, and all meals.
People working in the wine trade in Hong Kong or Singapore, in either hospitality or retail environments, who would benefit from increasing their knowledge, understanding and love of Australian wine, are invited to apply.
Applications are now open. To apply, please send an updated CV, along with no more than 500 words outlining why you would like to be selected as a Shaw + Smith Scholar and how you feel the experience would benefit your career in wine. All applications are to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, 30 September 2018.
