November 2014 Grapegrower & Winemaker magazine out now

The November 2014 issue of Grapegrower & Winemaker is out now and available online for all subscribers.

Join us as we discuss the latest in vine management; mildew control; fertilisers and nutrition; irrigation; filtration, pumps and tanks; and packaging and bottling.

This month you’ll find a range of interesting articles including a roundtable with Brian Freeman, Kim Chalmers and Brett McClen who give their insights into alternative varieties in Australia.

We also catch up with Matthew Moate, Wine Industry Suppliers Australia (WISA) executive officer, who talks about the enthusiasm and positive energy surrounding the organisation.

Among these must-read articles include a profile piece on Victorian young gun Jessica Clark, a research paper on the microbial origins of key wine aromas and a Q&A with two recruitment specialists on how to carry out a good interview.

In addition to this, Grapegrower & Winemaker delves into the topic of winery events and discovers whether or not they contribute to a boost in sales. This was drawn on research from University of Adelaide’s Teagan Altschwager who says there are three types of events which can determine how successful they are in motivating consumers to spend.
