CAEP, internships and internationalization


Selections open to participate in a paid wine internship period in the USA, Australia and New Zealand. The initiative is part of the collaboration that CAEP Italia and IRVOS have started since 2010 and which for two years has allowed young Sicilians to improve their skills in the wine sector.

  The selections will take place on a date to be set in Palermo at the Regional Institute of Wines and Oils of Sicily (via Libertà, 66).

Here are the requirements to participate:

– Be between 18 and 35 years of age (30 for internships in Australia and New Zealand);

– Possess a high school degree or diploma relevant to the CAEP “Oenology” program (oenology and viticulture/agriculture/agrarian expert diploma with specialization in oenology) and have at least one year of practical experience in the cellar/oenological laboratory (one season);

– At least 5 years of practical experience in the wine cellar/oenological laboratory (referenced), if you do not have any of the qualifications listed in the previous point;

– Possess basic knowledge of the English language (be able to carry out everyday conversations);

– Have a clean criminal record;

– Be single and in good health;

– Willingness to undergo a drug test (if requested).

Candidates must also present themselves with a CD/ROM or USB pen drive with the following documents stored:

– European CV written in English in pdf format

– Cover letter/autobiography in English in pdf (minimum one page)

– Two letters of reference in English in pdf (or in Italian with translation attached at the bottom) compiled by the companies where they carried out their practical experience.

– Scan of page 4 of the passport and, separately, scan of the photo.

During the meeting, a test of the candidates' linguistic abilities will take place.

The paid internships in the USA will take place from July/August 2012 until November/December, those in Australia and New Zealand from February 2013 until May/June.

The costs covered by the agreement between IRVOS and CAEP Italia are related to the registration fee, which includes visas and insurance. The selected participants will bear the costs of the trip; if they choose to fly to the USA with US-Airways they will be able to get the 15% discount.

To take part in the selections, contact the director of CAEP Italia, Francesco Ditta, via the following e-mail: [email protected].

Selections are also open for ten Sicilian companies that want to host as many young trainees from Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the European Community states.

The interns are oenologists with practical harvesting experience in the cellar and laboratory and experts in marketing, sales and communication. Companies will therefore be able to make use of young people in order to create a global network of contacts, have qualified people in the company with international experience, exchange their way of doing winemaking with people in the sector from all over the world and from different realities, exchange ideas and projects, opening up to international markets at practically zero cost.

This project follows the IRVOS programmatic lines for the valorization of human resources. CAEP Italia and IRVOS will assist companies and trainees during their stay in Italy, will provide them with medical health insurance and will also take care of organizing extra-work activities, such as orientation seminars for the valorisation of the territory, a Italian and food and wine tours in Sicily. Furthermore, IRVOS will support the administrative and association costs with CAEP and those to guarantee trainees a minimum wage during the
