The AWRI has released seven new webinars. Registration via the AWRI website is now open!
Starting 24 October, Larissa Barrows from the University of Melbourne takes a look at consumer attitudes toward sustainability certification in the wine industry and provides insights into how the wine sector can better converse with consumers on this issue.
The remaining six webinars will run through to January 2020 and address topics including managing ‘reductive’ aromas, membrane contactor systems, managing heatwaves, soil health, a climate outlook for vintage 2020 and measuring Baume or Brix.
