The complete list of 12 scholars for the 18th Len Evans Tutorial was recently announced, and Sommeliers Australia is thrilled that two of its current Committee members have been selected to take part in this prestigious wine programme, described as “the most exclusive wine school in the world.”
Congratulations to Co-President Sarah Andrew and NSW Committee member Alexander Kirkwood for being accepted to attend this year’s Tutorial, alongside an impressive list of wine professionals.
