Bayer Young Viticulturist Regional Competition

 If you are 30 year’s or younger then you could be this year’s Bayer Young Viticulturist of the Year

This is a fantastic event to be involved in – a number of previous contestants have commented that one of the biggest things they got out of entering the event is finding out what you do well and what areas you need some further training in. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other like minded Young Vits in the region. In the event that you go on to represent Central Otago at the National competition the experience gained from this is invaluable and not to mention looks great on your CV!
