South Australia: Leading sustainability down under
October 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
South Australia is the historic heart of Australian wine, home to famous regions, heritage estates, multi-generational winemaking families and old vines. The state is also a leader in sustainable wine production, with wineries focused on water and energy management, reducing their carbon footprint and conserving the environment.
Join us for a fascinating conversation on sustainability in South Australia, with wineries that are accredited by Sustainable Winegrowing Australia. Hear from winemakers and viticulturists from McLaren Vale – the most environmentally sustainable grape growing region in Australia – as well as the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Clare Valley and Riverland.
In a conversation with Jane Masters MW, winemakers and viticulturists from Gemtree Wines, Hither & Yon, Wakefield Wines, Torbreck, Wynns Coonawarra Estate and Thistledown Wines will talk about sustainable practices across their business. From irrigation practices and canopy management, alternative grape varieties and cover crops, to alternative and innovative packaging, find out what they’re doing and what impact it is having.
This webinar is free and open to all. You’re welcome to share details with colleagues and wine friends.
