Tutorial Dates

2023 LET – Monday 30th October to Friday 3rd November 2023.

2024 LET – Monday 4th November to Friday 8th November 2023.

Applications for the 2024 LET will open on Saturday 1st June 2024, and close Sunday, 30 June 2024 at 5pm.

Twelve fully paid scholarships are offered each year, valued at around $15,000 per person, generously funded by our industry sponsors, with tuition, wine, food, travel and accommodation all included.

The 2023 Tutorial will be held at Spicers Guesthouse, a 5 star hotel complex in the heart of Pokolbin. All sessions, accommodation and meals will be provided on site.

The Tutorial is open to all Australian wine industry personnel, regardless of their present position, or state of residence. For the moment, priority is given to Australia-based applicants.

Overall diversity of the attendee group is essential. A broad mix of industry backgrounds is targeted in the makeup of each cohort of LET Scholars. Previous Scholars have come from the fields of winemaking, liquor retailing, importing and wholesaling, restaurants, viticulture, marketing, education and journalism. To ensure a healthy spread of perspectives, a mix of represented regions is also considered, as well as a mix of genders.

While a solid base knowledge of wine styles of the world is preferred, the determining force with all the applicants is their potential.

Experience as an Associate Judge at a regional wine show is beneficial, but not essential, as is completion of courses such as the AWRI’s Advanced Wine Assessment Course.
