"AGMARDT's support for the Young Viticulturist of the Year competition has endorsed its value as well as helping us grow the competition further this year. We introduced a fifth region to the competition as well as Education Days prior to each regional competition. The AGMARDT $5,000 scholarship also gives the winner the opportunity to further their knowledge and skillset by visiting an international wine region - fantastic!" – Nicky Grandorge, National Co-ordinator, Young Viticulturist of the Year


AWDT 2019 Escalator Programme Now OPEN

Participants are engaged and challenged by cutting-edge content delivered by leading experts in a highly-supportive environment of personalised learning.

The coaching, support and mentoring participants receive from AWDT, industry leaders and each other put Escalator in a class of its own. Each year 14 women are selected for the programme which begins in February and ends in November.
