Naked Wines offers bursary to Plumpton wine student

Naked Wines is celebrating its 10th birthday by funding the tuition fees for a student to study wine production at Plumpton College.

The £9,000 bursary will cover one student’s full-time tuition fees for a whole year on a university level programme.

Eamon FitzGerald, managing director, Naked Wines UK, said: “We wanted to do something significant to celebrate our 10th birthday and pay it forward for the future. Plumpton College is undoubtedly one of the best institutes in the world for wine education and we are delighted to partner with them to support someone in entering a career in winemaking.

"Once they graduate, we will give them the contacts they need, through the global Naked network to gain work experience and further their careers. If one day they become a winemaker and we drink a wine together, well that would be perfect.”

Chris Foss, manager of Plumpton Wine Division, said: “We are really thrilled to partner with Naked Wines in facilitating a new career in wine. This brilliant opportunity will really give a deserving student the benefit of Naked’s expertise, experience and resources.”

The closing date for submission is February 28, 2019. For full details, visit:
