We are excited to announce that Lauren Hutton is the recipient of the 2020 Elderton Winemaking Excellence Scholarship!
Lauren is currently studying a Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology at the University of Adelaide, in her third year of the four year degree.
“This scholarship gives us 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,” said Cameron when announcing Lauren as the coming year’s recipient.
“Foundation Barossa is grateful to the Ashmead family and Elderton Wines for their ongoing commitment to this scholarship which is just another way the foundation is able to fulfil its mission of giving today to enable tomorrow,” said Nick Slape, Chair of Foundation Barossa.
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.
Lauren notes, “This scholarship will allow me to undertake my first vintage in a winemaking role, where I’ll have the ability to implement the last three years of study into a much more practical setting. I cannot wait to learn the ins and outs of this industry, and how a well-respected company produces their wines. Thank you to Foundation Barossa and Elderton Wines for their support.”
We look forward to having Lauren join our team for Vintage 2020!
