The development and success of the Australian grape and wine sector is driven largely by individuals: innovative and collaborative change-makers who contribute their knowledge and time to the greater good of the sector.

Future Leaders is the wine community’s national professional and personal development program cultivating world-class leadership qualities across the sector. It creates a network of confident and committed individuals who are ready to ‘be next’: taking their businesses and our sector to the next level, contributing to the future success and longevity of the Australian wine community.

Funded by the sector and coordinated by Wine Australia, Future Leaders is a biennial program offered to applicants with open, creative, inquisitive minds who are typically early to mid-career and already demonstrating leadership potential.

If you’re accepted into the program you’ll hear from some of Australia’s best speakers on topics such as innovation, leadership and culture. You’ll connect with people from across the Australian grape and wine community, including our Future Leaders Alumni.

Since 2006 there have been over 120 Future Leaders graduates. Many have taken roles at regional wine and grape grower associations and some have been appointed to national committees and boards.
