December 2014 Grapegrower & Winemaker magazine out now

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

’Tis the season to celebrate so sit back with bubbles and join us as we discuss the latest in bird control; analytical services; oak; harvesting; and law among others.

This month Grapegrower & Winemaker catches up with Mary Retallack who reflects on her time at the Len Evans Tutorial and describes it as ‘one of the most amazing weeks’ of her life.

We also look at the recently announced China free trade agreement and how it will affect the wine industry on a national scale now and in the future.

Among these must-read articles include a profile piece on Barossa baron Leo Pech who last month received WGGA’s Honorary Life Membership, a research paper on Chinese investment in vineyards, and a feature which addresses co-inoculation with yeast and lactic acid bacteria, presented by researchers Guillaume Antalick, Marie-Claire Perello and Gilles de Revel.

In addition to this, Grapegrower & Winemaker looks at how to operate a successful cellar door beyond sales. This was drawn from research and a webinar hosted by the Wine Communicators of Australia.
