Treading lightly the focus at major grape and wine industry conference

Sustainability in the wine industry is the focus at next week’s Romeo Bragato conference, with the theme: Treading lightly – our sustainable footprint.

The 13th annual Romeo Bragato conference, New Zealand’s major technical conference for the grape and wine industry and named after one of the pioneers of the New Zealand wine industry, will this year focus on sustainability including the impact of global warming.

Professor Greg Jones, United States-based climatologist and world leader in climate change, will look at the impact of climate change on viticulture in the Bragato Address.

The Prime Minister Rt. Hon Helen Clark will also speak at this year’s Romeo Bragato conference outlining New Zealand’s path to sustainability.

New Zealand Winegrowers chief executive Philip Gregan said sustainability is critical to the New Zealand wine industry and will help maintain our competitive advantage globally.

“It is our passport to trade. We have been committed to sustainable winegrowing for 13 years and we continue to be committed to New Zealand viticulture and the wine industry demonstrating world’s best practice.”

This year’s Romeo Bragato conference will be held in Auckland from 23–25 August.
