In 2007 we lost a great friend of the wine industry, Jimmy Mancbach. His love of wine and enthusiasm for living life to the fullest will truly be missed.

Even in his passing, Jimmy’s spirit of generosity lives on in the form of The Jimmy Mancbach Memorial Scholarship Foundation. The foundation realizes his dream of creating a scholarship for up-and-coming fine wine professionals. Jimmy wanted to provide a rare opportunity for those young wine enthusiasts to work with some of America’s greatest winemakers with whom he had developed strong relationships throughout the years.
The annual recipients will travel to specially selected wineries during harvest, where they will work with some of the most talented and celebrated winemakers and viticulturists in the wine industry. There they will carry forth Jimmy’s passion, integrity and love for great wine and food.
If you are interested in learning more about one of the Jimmy Mancbach Memorial Scholarships, refer to the Scholarship Information above, where you will find the application and reference forms. Applications deadline is March 22nd.
