Suffice to say….the best week of my wine life…!!It goes without saying, the opportunity to taste some unbelievably amazing wines over the 5 days and to be mentored by some of Australia’s finest wine people is just a crazy opportunity that should not be missed by anyone…. The group from LET 2010….have become new friends in wine for life, we’ve all bonded so well as a group, we’ve got together each year since then having our own LET weekend of amazing food and wine….

The Len Evans Scholarship will change your life. You will taste wines you most likely will never, ever see again. It resets any benchmark you may have ever preconceived….
Steve Flamsted, Innocent Bystander
The Len Evans Tutorial is simply the best fine wine educational event I have ever taken part in. Where else could a scholar taste a horizontal of DRC; Pendold’s Bin 60A, Lindeman’s 1959 and 1965 classics, Wynn’s 1955 “Michael”, Mildara 1963 “Peppermint Pattie” and 100’s of other great wines of the World? It’s “high-altitude” intensive palate training for a wine professional…
‘As an MW I was asked why I wanted to partake in the Tutorial. I was told that I potentially had a lot to lose. My answer was simple. The Len Evans Tutorial is an occasion to celebrate the richness of Australian wine, its place in the world, and those who embrace it; while tasting outstanding wines. There is nothing to lose, but everything to gain.’…
Ned Goodwin, MW
“One of the toughest, but most rewarding weeks. I encourage anyone for whom the love of wine burns bright to apply, apply, apply- it is not to be missed, and you will not be disappointed.”
Corrina Wright, Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards
The Tutorial is far more than tasting once in a lifetime wines and bench marking one’s palate against industry icons; it’s an experience that greatly assists one in being actively involved in the nurturing of the Aussie wine industry. And the Dark ‘n’ Stormies are pretty good too.
Thomas Hogan, The Boathouse Daylesford
‘This would have to be one of the most important weeks in my life that I would love to do over and over again- sad to realise you only get to do it once! My life has changed because of the LET and the experiences it provided .
Tom Ward, Swinging Bridge
Acceptance into the Len Evans Tutorial is the most aspirational milestone anyone who is passionate and committed to the wine industry can achieve in Australia. The elite network of mentors and supportive camaraderie amongst the scholars provides an enriching and enlightening environment that challenges and rewards elevating the ordinary to extraordinary. The generosity of wines provided and the extreme calibre of their quality will provide a lifetime of epiphanic moments that can only propel you forward to achieve the wine industry’s greatest international accolade – Master of Wine.
Elizabeth Reed, Samuel Smith & Son WA
“The Len Evans Tutorial has become essential to anyone looking for a career in any aspect of the Australian wine industry, as well as simply being an extraordinarily enjoyable week”.
