The Elderton Winemaking Excellence Scholarship
In 2015, we announced the introduction of the Elderton Winemaking Excellence Scholarship to be administered through Foundation Barossa.
The scholarship funds, administered by Foundation Barossa, aim to reward and encourage achievement and greater effort in winemaking education. The Elderton Winemaking Excellence Scholarship is awarded to a passionate student undertaking a Bachelor of Oenology (Winemaking) at an Australian University, entering their first through fourth year of study. The scholarship provides financial assistance of up to $3000 towards educational expenses along with opportunities for the student to receive mentoring from the team at Elderton Wines.
This scholarship gives Elderton the opportunity to give back to the great Barossa community that continues to support our small family winery. We feel that offering mentoring and vintage placements to the successful students also provides them with great building blocks for their career.
