As a non-profit program delivered almost entirely by volunteers, the Len Evans Tutorial relies on the support of Industry to undertake its work in wine eduction.

Twelve fully paid scholarships are offered each year, wholly funded by companies from the Australian wine industry, many of whom have been on board since the Tutorial’s inception. Each scholarship comprises tuition, wine, food, travel, and accommodation for the week.  The generous contribution of the industry is greatly valued by the Board, and of course, by the scholars. Our valued supporters enable us to preserve the legacy of the Tutorial, and to maintain the high standard of world wines consumed during this incredible week.

Support the LET

The LET is a non-profit program funded entirely by sponsorships and donations, and delivered almost entirely by volunteers. We have expanded our support structure, which has changed little since Mr. Evans established the Tutorial in 2001.

We are ever grateful to our foundation sponsors, many of whom have been part of this wonderful program since Day One.  The LET would not have succeeded as it has without this support, and we are hopeful that these relationships will continue well into the future. But to guarantee overall consistency and ensure that the highest possible standards are employed in the running of the Tutorial (as demanded by Mr. Evans from the beginning), we are now offering additional sponsorship opportunities.

The Len Evans Foundation Ltd is a separate entity, the charitable arm of the Len Evans Tutorial, which supports wine education programs outside the Tutorial. Click here for more information.

Wine Donations

You may be able to help the Tutorial in other ways. Rare and wonderful wines are becoming so scarce, and command top dollar when available. Should you have any outstanding wines that you would like to donate to our Cellar, please contact
