Luring British Wine Professionals to Largest NZ Wine Region

Date 4th July 2014 - Media release

Luring British Wine Professionals to New Zealand’s Largest Wine region

Wine Marlborough and the NZ-UK Link Foundation are proud to announce that applications for the 2014/2015 Wine Marlborough NZ-UK Link Foundation scholarship are now open.

The history of the scholarship began in 2009 when Wine Marlborough and the NZ-UK Link Foundation, together with the late John Avery MW, established a scholarship to fund an exceptional wine industry professional from the UK to travel to New Zealand to experience Marlborough’s wine industry. The aim of the scholarship is to further the recipient’s wine knowledge and assist in their personal development as a potential leader in the wine industry.

Wine Marlborough with the support of the NZ-UK Link Foundation will host the lucky recipient in New Zealand, predominantly in the Marlborough region. They will have the opportunity to study viticultural and winemaking practices, learn about innovation and the breadth of styles being produced in the region as well as meet the people behind the vines and wines. The recipient will experience life in the Marlborough wine region and will gain an in-depth understanding of our wines and what makes them sought after the world over.

Kat Wiggins the 2012 recipient of the scholarship said “The scholarship gave me an amazing insight into Marlborough, its geography, its people and its wines. Covering all aspects, from the artisan producers to the larger companies, from the conventional to the biodynamic, I left with far more understanding, with new friends and with a true love for the region”.

We are looking for Wine Industry professionals who are UK citizens with at least five years’ experience in the wine industry. More information and the application form can be downloaded from the Wine Marlborough websitewww.wine-marlborough.co.nz. Applications close on the 17th of October 2014.
