Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker
Current Issue – May 2019 (No. 664)

Grapegrower & Winemaker provides subscribers with access to an online version of each print issue.

The focus of the May 2019 issue of the Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker is vineyard establihsment. Regular columnist and viticultural consultant Sam Bowman tackles this subject, offering advice for avoiding vine failure with expert tips from Bruce Chalmers and Nick Dry – two of  Australia’s leading vine propagation experts.

The issue also includes a roundtable discussion with three growers on the machinery and technology they are using in their vineyards, which provides an intersting snapshot of what growers in different regions are making use of in their vineyards and what they think of it.

In Winemaking, journalist Hans Mick chats with Rocco Longo, from the University of Tasmania, who is developing an instrument that will make in-line and real-time grape juice assessments at the grape press.

Journalist Eleanor Danenberg asked several sommeliers from different parts of the country to reveal ‘what’s hot in wine’ in their restaurants at the moment. She also asked them to provide some advice for smaller producers on how to improve their chances of having their products included on restaurant wine lists.

Eleanor also spoke with Eric Wilkes from the Australian Wine Research Institute for an update on the research organisation’s efforts to protect the reputation of Australian wine in the war against wine counterfeiting.
