Karina Dambergs wins dux title of the 2012 Lorenzo Galli Wine Scholarship
The Lorenzo Galli Wine Scholarship encourages application by wine professionals and educated enthusiasts to celebrate and explore the diversity and richness of Italy’s wine and history while showcasing the latest trends in Australia with its interpretations of Italian varietals.
The program’s patron, Pamela Galli, conceived the idea of a scholarship to honour her late husband, Lorenzo Galli.
Tuscan-born, Lorenzo arrived in Australia in 1952 and built up a successful property business. Lorenzo later added vigneron to his list achievements when he and Pamela created Galli Estate winery in Victoria’s Sunbury wine region in 1997.
Lorenzo had a love for Italian grape varieties and the winemaking craft from growing grapes to their production; it was his dream to share that passion and encourage younger people to learn more about that process.
This scholarship is Pamela’s tribute.
