Congratulations to Oakdene Vineyards Wines Manager, Steven Paul on being selected for the prestigious Len Evans Tutorial.

Only 12 scholars are chosen and put through their paces in what James Halliday described as “the most exclusive wine school in the world.”

Congratulations to Steven!Each year, the prestigious Len Evans Tutorial welcomes some of the most elite professionals in wine, vineyard, hospitality and sales from across Australia to develop their wine appreciation with the nation’s top wine experts over the week in the Hunter Valley.

This year’s successful 12 applicants for the 18th annual tutorial, have been announced with an extraordinary calibre of scholars including wine and viticulture professionals at the top of their game. Our very own Wines Manager Steven Paul is among them!

The Tutorial program is designed to define the demands of wine show judging and to define quality by exposing the scholars to the great wine styles of the world. Many of the greatest, rarest and oldest wines are opened, tasted and scrutinised in this one extraordinary week when 12 leaders in their field are put to the sternest and most rewarding wine course of their lives.

A team of five tutors will put the scholars through their paces in what James Halliday described as “the most exclusive wine school in the world.”

Congratulations to Steven, an amazing achievement!

Some great pics from our recent Swiss Santé event at the heritage listed Neuchâtel cellar in the Barrabool Hills.  

Wine Geelong members + special guests were invited to a special tasting of wine from Neuchâtel, as we paid homage to the Swiss pioneers who founded our Geelong wine region in the mid-1800s.  

Many thanks to all who attended, it was a lovely afternoon!
