Five new AWRI webinars – registration is open now!

8 July 2022

As we head into the cold and wet months, registrations are now open for the first five webinars of the 2022 AWRI webinar program. Starting on Thursday, 21 July, Simone George, a Global Wine & Grape Broker from Ciatti, will lead you through the global bulk wine landscape, looking at key international markets and pending issues, including the supply and demand outlook for Australian grapes and wine. Other webinar topics in this winter block include the national vintage report for 2022, a biosecurity webinar on grapevine viruses and phytoplasmas, a comprehensive update on Sustainable Winegrowing Australia and a look at hail recovery and what has been learnt from the damage that occurred in the 2021 growing season.

Each webinar includes a presentation and, where appropriate, a practitioner to contribute real-life examples and experiences. There will also be an opportunity for audience members to ask questions.

Sessions are held on Thursdays at 11:30 am (SA time).

All webinars are free to attend but do require pre-registration.
