Congratulations to Michael Harrold, Vineyard Manager at Pikes Wines, who was the successful recipient of the 2023 CVWGA AWRI Advanced Viticulture Course Scholarship. The scholarship funded Michael to attend AWRI’s intensive four-day course on the latest techniques and technologies in viticulture. Michael travelled in a small group across several SA regions to visit sites and meet practitioners who are at the cutting-edge of Australian viticulture. The scholarship was funded by the Clare Valley Wine and Grape Association through Wine Australia’s regional program and is valued at $3300.

Mick said “it was a big week of learning new things and a great opportunity for networking and exchanging ideas with viticulturists from around Australia. I highly recommend the course and encourage other CVWGA members to apply next year for what was a very worthwhile trip”
