What is a webinar?

Webinars are interactive online seminars where you participate from your home or workplace using a computer or mobile device with internet access. You will hear from a presenter, see their slides and have the opportunity to ask questions. AWRI webinars cover a range of winemaking, winery management and viticulture topics and are usually held on a Thursday at 11:30 am Australian Central Standard Time (Adelaide, GMT+09:30).

System requirements

You will need a computer or mobile device with an Internet connection. Audio is connected over the Internet using your computer or mobile device’s speakers (Voice over Internet Protocol – VOIP). Participants joining a webinar via a mobile device will need to download an app available for free from iTunes or Google Play.


The AWRI webinar program is supported by Wine Australia, with levies from Australia’s grapegrowers and winemakers and matching funds from the Australian Government. The AWRI is a member of the Wine Innovation Cluster in Adelaide, SA.
