    The Wine Scholar Guild (WSG) is proud to sponsor 10 Golden Vines® WSG Scholarships in 2022, awarded by the judging panel from students applying for the Taylor’s Port Golden Vines® Diversity and Golden Vines® Master of Wine & Master Sommelier Scholarships.

    The Taylor’s Port Golden Vines® Diversity Scholarship, Internship & Mentorship Programme is for aspiring black and ethnic minority students wishing to undertake the Masters of Wine (MW) and Master Sommelier (MS) programmes – open to candidates from all over the world. These scholarships, worth up to £55,000 for each scholar, will cover the entirety of their course and examination costs, as well as loss of earnings during their work placement internships.

    The Internship programme includes a set of diversified work experiences with some of the world’s top wine domaines and spirit distilleries: Bodega Catena Zapata, Castiglion del Bosco, Château Cheval Blanc, Château d’Yquem, Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Lapostolle Clos Apalta, Colgin Cellars, Dom Pérignon, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, Domaine Baron Thénard, Domaine des Lambrays, Domaine Laroche, Klein Constantia, Lawrence Wine Estates (Heitz Cellars, Stony Hill Vineyard, Ink Grade Estate and Burgess Cellars), Liber Pater, Marchesi Antinori, Opus One, Ruinart, Symington Family Estates, Taylor’s Port, The Macallan Distillery, Vilafonté, Vina Vik, Weingut Egon Müller. In addition, Amorim Cork, Annabel’s Private Members Club, the Kedge Wine School, Octavian Wine Vaults, the OIV, UC Davis Department of Enology & Viticulture, and the WOW Wine School (Porto) will also provide academic courses or work experience opportunities for the winning scholars.

    In addition to the 3x Taylor’s Port Golden Vines® Scholarships, 4x Golden Vines® Master of Wine & Master Sommelier Scholarships will also be awarded by the judging panel. The Master of Wine & Master Sommelier Scholarship Programme is also for aspiring black and ethnic minority scholarships and are worth £12,500 each to cover the entirety of their course and examination costs for the Master of Wine or Master Sommelier programmes. 

    The winners of The Taylor’s Port Golden Vines® Diversity Scholarships will receive their awards at the 2022 Golden Vines® Awards Ceremony to be held in Florence, Italy from Friday 14 until Monday 17 October 2022. At the ceremony, The Golden Vines® Awards will be awarded to the world’s best fine wine producers as voted by leading members of the global fine wine industry in the Gérard Basset Global Fine Wine Report produced by Liquid Icons, with polling opening on 7 March 2021.
