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.
I have a multidisciplinary background and role because of the nature of my qualifications and experience in university teaching, as winery and vineyard owner/operator and as international consultant to the beverage industries. This is reflected in my position as Research Leader in the School of Viticulture and Wine Science, a role that requires me to understand and have input into both wine and grape based research. Consequently I contribute to research projects that are related to chemistry, microbiology, engineering, product safety, sensory aspects of wine and product quality.
Fantastic scholarships and awards are available for our students.
