The Dombeya Scholarship is an award that aims to identify and sponsor outstanding South African graduate winemakers from disadvantaged backgrounds and to provide opportunities for them to work and study overseas.


In 2009, a graduate student from the University of Stellenbosch will travel to Australia to work vintage at Voyager Estate in Margaret River. Following this, he/she will spend a week of research in the Oenology Department of the University of Adelaide, and then will finish the Australian visit with a stint at Kaesler Wines in the Barossa Valley.

It is hoped that this initiative will identify future leaders and encourage students from previously disadvantaged backgrounds to seek a career in the wine industry.
