National First For Wine College

In establishing a training program for indigenous trainees, the Queensland College of Wine Tourism (QCWT) has created another industry first.

With support from State and Commonwealth governments, trainees from the Granite Belt and South Burnett regions will undertake a Certificate II in Food Processing [Wine] whilst working with a host employer.

The college offers the rare combination for a training facility with its own vineyard, winery and cellar door; the Banca Ridge Bistro plus a conference and function centre.  The college is situated just outside the Stanthorpe CBD in the Queensland wine capital.

This particular program is believed to be a national wine industry first and offers the ten trainees with real experience with specialised training in a relatively short time. For information telephone Tim Pellatt on 07 4685 5050.
