Adelaide is the undisputed wine capital of Australia, with over 200 cellar doors and five outstanding wine regions, so it is no surprise the Bachelor of Viticulture & Oenology at the University of Adelaide is one of the most highly recognised in the world. Currently in his 3rd year, student Jordan Pickles undertook the degree because of his passion for and love of wine. The craft of winemaking and the sheer pleasure of tasting remarkable wines excite and motivate Jordan, and he is determined to take his place amongst our leading wine industry personnel.
All advice so far, from networking at industry events and volunteering at every Show and wine event possible, has instilled in Jordan the importance of tasting and the value in learning to judge, and so he hopes to use funds from his Sydney Royal Wine Study Scholarship to travel and undertake courses outside of his university degree. Visiting international wine regions, enrolling in masterclasses and volunteering at events will all be possible with the thanks to financial assistance from the Scholarship.
