Exciting News - Annual Trade Education Bursary Launch
On behalf of Wine Spirit Women, Justine McGovern and Lynne Coyle MW, are delighted to announce the launch of an annual Trade Education Bursary.
“We are thrilled to have secured this generous support; it will provide a starting point for further fund raising so that Wine Spirit Women can genuinely help support young people in the drinks industry with their WSET & Sommelier training courses”
Launched in March 2018 and now with over eighty members, Wine Spirit Women have a core ethos of helping to support entrants to the industry with their product training.
The 2019/20 Education Bursary has been generously supported by Champagne Ayala. Originally a small family Champagne House, now owned by Champagne Bollinger family, the house style and quality are the responsibility of 44-year-old Cellar Master Caroline Latrive. Graduating with a master’s degree in oenology she then joined Ayala in 2006, she then honed her craft before being appointed as Cellar Master in 2011.
“Education forms an integral part of our wine industry. We are delighted to invest in the future education of our inspiring young people. Partnering with Wine Spirit Women is a fundamental move towards encouraging growth and learning within the industry” - Caroline Latrive, Cellar Master – Champagne Ayala
