Adapting to Difficult Vintages

 Are the years getting hotter, are the winters getting wetter, is vintage earlier? 

 In recent years, extreme weather events such as heatwaves, drought and flooding rains seem to be becoming more frequent. This workshop will provide adaptation techniques to deal with these conditions in both the winery and vineyard.

 Participants will be provided with information on how to deal with drought, salinity, extreme heat or heatwave events in the vineyard, bushfires and smoke taint, processing ripe fruit in the winery and avoiding stuck fermentations, as well as dealing with a compressed vintage and logistical pressures. We will also provide information about growing grapes and making wine in wet seasons with high disease pressures including Botrytis.

 The workshop will explore energy use and efficiency savings in the winery, waste water management, and will include practicals and tastings of regionally suited alternate variety wines.

This workshop is presented by the AWRI.
