Andrew Yin Bao, Student
Congratulations to Andrew Yin Bao, EIT Diploma in Grapegrowing and Winemaking student who won the HB A&P Society Mercedes Benz BEST STUDENT WINE Award.
My research has been selected after consultation with the local wine industry. Emphasis has been given to studying the role of vineyard variability on grape composition and wine quality for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah cultivars. Major conclusions from the research have important practical applications to the New Zealand wine industry.
Fantastic scholarships and awards are available for our students.
