2021 Wine Media Cadetship

FANCY yourself the next Nick Ryan or Katie Spain? Budding wine writers aged between 25 – 40 can now apply for the 2021 wine Communicators of Aus­tralia (WCA) wine media cadetship.

The six-month program allows the cadet to participate in a range of practical experiences including the one-day intensive Advanced Wine Assessment program, domestic wine events, media placement and mentorship within the wine industry.

Wine Communicators Australia Ex­ecutive Officer Andrew Stark said the program aims to support excellence in wine communications.

“Like everything during the pandem­ic, this year’s program will be slightly different to previous years with the wine media cadet unable to travel inter­nationally, however they will continue to undertake exceptional wine experi­ences,” Mr Stark said.

Primary Industries and Regional Development Minister David Basham encouraged those interested in South Australia’s $2.3 billion wine industry to apply.

“The Wine Media Cadet program provides a remarkable opportunity for a wine industry professional to take the next step in their desired commu­nication career and tell some of South Australia’s interesting stories,” Minister Basham said.
