Vintage Workshop – Lab Skills and the AWRI Ferment Simulator

Vintage is approaching, and it is time to start thinking about upskilling vintage lab staff and making the most of available technology for 2018. AWRI Commercial Services will hold workshops in Adelaide, the Barossa and Griffith to cover a range of vintage-specific skills for lab staff and winemakers.

Each workshop will be conducted in two parts. The first part will focus on the laboratory, with content aimed at new vintage casual staff. The training will cover a range of general wine laboratory skills and vintage-related analyses, including both theoretical and practical aspects. The training will help get new staff up to speed and make them aware of common mistakes so that these can be avoided.

The second part will focus on using the AWRI Ferment Simulator. This session will be relevant to both lab staff who may be entering ferment data, and winemakers who may need to use and interpret the data. The session will be conducted in a computer suite, allowing participants to work hands-on with the Ferment Simulator as they learn. Participants will be able to bring their own historical ferment data to work with if they wish.

Each part of the workshop will be conducted over a half day. Tickets cover both sessions but are transferable, so it is possible to send one person to the lab skills session and a second person to the Ferment Simulator session, using the same ticket.

$500 per ticket
