The AWRI conducts seminars and workshops across Australia as part of a national roadshow program funded by Wine Australia.
Seminars include presentations on grape and wine research activities. Each seminar is tailored to meet the interests of the region, with presentations being selected by the local regional association. Content is delivered by researchers from a range of organisations. Participants can access seminar presentations after each event (password-protected).
Workshops focus on current technical production issues, with best-practice advice and solutions, and are generally delivered by AWRI winemakers and viticulturists. The current workshop on the Chardonnay winemaking trial features 15 Chardonnay wines, made from the same batch of grapes and showcasing a range of different winemaking techniques.
The AWRI and its partner organisations provide their services to the regions free of charge. Roadshows are delivered in collaboration with regional associations and the associations may charge a small attendance fee to cover venue and catering expenses.
