Landmark Australia Tutorial: a great opportunity for 12 lucky winners!
The late, great Len Evans set up a tutorial system, where each year a select band of Australia'ss young wine elite were offered the opportunity to attend an intensive tasting course where some serious bottles were opened (see http://lenevanstutorial.com.au/). As far as I can tell, this is still ongoing, with the 2008 edition due to run next week. It reminds me a bit of Willy Wonka and his golden tickets.
Along similar lines, Wine Australia has launched a similar Tutorial, but this time focusing on a dozen emerging talents from outside Australia, titled Landmark Australia Tutorial. It looks to be a really promising program with some high-level tutors. Worth thinking about if you are in the trade?
