SHORT AND SHARP
Young viticulturists wanted
Last year’s winner of the Moore Stephens Markhams Young Viticulturist Central Otago competition David Salmon is encouraging others to enter. It took Mr Salmon four attempts to win the regional title and while he was unplaced in the national competition he believed the regional win helped him secure a new position as vineyard manager at Passage Rock Wines on Waiheke Island. Competition organiser, and a former Central Otago and national winner Nick Paulin said competitors came out with amuch broader understanding of the industry. Entry is available for anyone who has worked in the wine industry full time for the past 30 years and is aged 30 or under on December 31. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
