Wine Industry Journal March/April issue out now!

In the March/April issue of the Wine Industry Journal we look at how New Zealand is evoking keen interest from the world’s wine industry with their quality grapes and wine and environmental practices. Following the Pinot Noir 2007 conference held in Wellington earlier this year, the University of Adelaide’s Associate Professor Peter Dry gives his thoughts on how science has advanced the world’s wine industry; and New Zealand researchers explore the consumption patterns among the country’s winery visitors.

Following this year’s early harvest almost right around Australia, filtration and clarification is a timely subject for this issue. The Australian Wine Research Institute gives advice on ensuring laboratory tests accurately predict protein stability during storage and transport, and Sonya Logan catches up with Chris Colby to learn more about his latest research into optimal use of bentonite.

Looking at the topic of finance, Jonathan Scott analyses the Australian wine industry’s emerging international markets and says exporters must be aware of the significant challenges in breaking through the cultural barriers of many countries.

Tony Keys takes a five-year retrospective account of major mergers and acquisitions of the industry and investigates where we are now, and where we are heading.

Geographical Indications continue to be a hot topic of debate in the Australian wine industry, and Dr Richard Smart puts forward his take on the trials and tribulations of the confirmation of Australia’s wine regions’ and sub-regions’ boundaries.

In this issue’s Varietal Report, we look at a class of the popular Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend and hear from several of Australia’s producers about how they go about stamping their distinctive style on this wine.

The 13th Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference, WineTech Exhibition and 4th Australian Wine Industry Environment Conference will bring industry members together from around Australia and overseas and we look forward to catching up with Journal readers both old and new at the sessions and workshops. As media partners, we bring you up-to-date news and information in our special feature so you can continue with your planning to get the most from the days’ events.
