This month we shine a spotlight on one of Australia’s most celebrated wine regions – the Barossa. As part of our special regional feature, Barossa Australia Viticultural Development Manager Nicki Robins provides an update on the challenges, opportunities and achievements in this always-dynamic SA region. Journalist Meg Riley speaks to “Nature’s nurturer” Prue Henschke, an industry pioneer whose trail-blazing work has informed and guided many across the industry in the adoption of regenerative viticultural practices. We also learn about new technology that offers the ability to measure bunch weights in real time, while we’re also introduced to Young Gun Caitlin Brown, a High Eden winemaker who’s exploring a unique site at the peak of the Barossa. We find out what the best options may be for winemakers looking to downsize or have greater volume variability in the winery, and winemaker Paul Le Lacheur explores the options for clay amphorae and outlines how these ancient designs may assist in innovative winemaking today. Meantime, Sonya Logan speaks to winemaker Philip Shaw about Hoosegg Seven Heaven Chardonnay for Behind the Top Drops. With wine businesses looking for a strategic edge to remain profitable amidst difficult conditions, we speak to financial advisors to find out how they – and their industry clients – are adapting to a changed operating environment. Meantime, HR consultants Ilga Horvat and Linda Blackett provide a practical guide for employers on how to manage workplace injuries. Marketing consultant Sarah Rasheed also takes us through the options for wine producers to strengthen their sales via much-important online channels.
