We offer 4 annual scholarships for 2½ months - 3½ during the crush season. Interns will have the opportunity to be involved with the making of fine wine and everything that goes into it.

Due to size of the participating boutique wineries, the intern is an integral part of the operation. Each winery and vintner varies, as does each situation. Once your application has been accepted and approved you will be contacted on all specifics

of the internships.

The scholarship monies are to assist in the costs of living expenses while interning. The scholarship reward is for $5,000.00.

Scholarships are awarded annually based on merit, outstanding character and hard work.
