Wine Tasmania Visitation Scholarship - apply now!




As part of a new partnership between Wine Tasmania and Sommeliers Australia, 'Sommelier' members of Sommeliers Australia are invited to apply to participate in a visit to Tasmania in July 2017. 

This could be your chance to taste your way around the island, spending two days meeting wine producers and tasting their wines, whilst soaking up the breathtaking scenery of the island. Close to half of Tasmania's modest wine production is only available on-island, so visiting is the best way to find out more about this unique island and the wines it produces.
