Following on the heels of last week’s inaugural Wine Industry Impact Conference on the direct to consumer (DtC) market, the October issue of the Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker is now out with its own focus on this sales channel.
The issue features some of the preliminary findings from the recent survey by Wine Australia of the nation’s wineries on their DtC sales. The survey was instigated by Wine Industry Suppliers Australia, the organisers of last week’s conference.
Also on the theme of DtC is journalist Chloe Szentpeteri’s interviews with four Australian wineries on their sales via cellar door, mail order and website.
The October Grapegrower & Winemaker also features the topic of Vineyard Innovations. Regular writer Ben Rose takes a tilt at this subject, highlighting some of the things he feels could be put to better use in vineyards.
On the subject of Winemaking, Hans Mick endeavours to find out whether China’s preference for wines sealed with a cork is showing any sign of abating, while Paul Bowyer from H2O filtration describes a new enzyme now available in Australia that enhances the varietal aromas in Sauvignon Blanc.
