WineTech 2005 - a wine and vine showcase of technology and equipment all under one roof
Are you considering the purchase of tanks as part of a new winery venture or upgrade? Which do you choose: AR Black, F. Miller, Flextank, JMA/Velo, Nadalie, Cristopia, Stirling, Omni or South America's Tersainox?
Perhaps you’re reviewing cooperage requirements? Presumably you would have well known brands in mind such as Frances' Morin, Mercier, Nadalie, Marsannay, Garonnaise, Tonnellerie Quintessence, Desrieux or Tonnellerie Bordelaise. How about Toneleria Victoria from Spain, Tersainox out of Chile, Dolium DFT from Hungary, Bronson & Jacobs, or Australia's own Southern Cross, Heinrich, Lefort or Schahinger barrels?
There’s so much to consider in running a winery, or vineyard, and finding time to contact suppliers, search the web, hit the phone, wait for follow-up and contact is always in short supply. Here’s your chance to save time and compare competing brands all under the one roof: Adelaide, WineTech 2005 trade show from 20-22 July. And – we promise the range on offer is not just restricted to tanks and barrels!
