Latest issue of Grapegrower & Winemaker out now

The theme of the October Grapegrower & Winemaker is ‘Threats and disruptions to Australia’s wine industry’.

Journalist Brendan Black explores three potential disruptions to the nation’s wine industry — namely the arrival of Amazon in the local retail wine space, cannabis-infused wine and synthetic wine — while four members of industry share their thoughts on the industry’s biggest threats.

Regular writer Ben Rose calls on growers to start planning for the upcoming harvest period now, outlining the steps growers can take to significantly reduce the stress that often comes at vintage time.

Journalist Hans Mick also delves into the small but rapidly growing number of vineyard operators employing the Simonit and Sirch pruning technique.
We also look at the effects of the common fining agent PVPP on specific polyphenolic compounds found in rosé wine, Henschke senior winemaker Paul Hampton talks to Hans Mick about the Hill of Grace vineyard and the role that oak products play in the winery’s prized Shiraz, and journalist Eleanor Danenberg looks into the growth of the vegan-friendly wine market.

And we respond to industry feedback for more information on the subject with the introduction of a new regular column on succession planning for family-owned wineries, written by law firm Finalysons.
