Date: July 15, 2022#5:00 pm AEST
Applications open from 13 June to 15 July 2022
The Sommeliers Australia National Executive Committee (NEC) is delighted to announce the running of the 2022 Sommeliers Australia Education Scholarship from 28 to 31 August 2022 in Melbourne; an initiative that the association has successfully conducted for over a decade.
Offered to Sommeliers Australia Professional members nationally every 3 years, the 2022 Education Scholarship will be open to not only sommeliers, but also to wine buyers and wine professionals working in on-premise, wine retail or distribution settings to apply for, ensuring that the next generation of wine professionals receive the training and support required to successfully advance along their chosen wine path.
Twelve selected Scholars will have the incredible opportunity to develop their skills in tasting, assessment and articulation, using the best wines from around the world.
In 2022, the Education Scholarship will be conducted in Melbourne for twelve sommeliers/wine professionals selected from across Australia:
- Three-day intensive tasting programme;
- Local and international benchmark wines;
- An impressive list of guest tutors will join Sommeliers Australia’s Education Sub-Committee members to deliver this programme.
The aim of the programme is to nurture and develop what it is to be a top-class sommelier and we strongly encourage those that are not currently in senior sommelier or wine roles (or those working in an environment where mentoring is not currently on offer) to apply for this Education Scholarship.

Online applications open on Monday 13 June, and will be accepted until 5pm, Friday 15 July.
