Wine industry event to be hosted online in October

A free event that will showcase research about the wine sector will be held online in October.

Hosted by Charles Sturt University’s National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, the seminar will be held for grape growers and winemakers to find out about emerging trends and technology.

Centre Director Professor Leigh Schmidtke said the online format means that people from across the country will be able to tune in to research that will help industry leaders make decisions for the future.

Professor Schmidtke said one project that will be discussed is a smartphone app that helps identify and manage nutrient disorders.

“There’s also new techniques for assessing the levels of bunch rot contamination and measuring different forms of copper in wine,” Schmidtke said.

Another topic of discussion will be examining research that explored the correlations between the sensory properties of Australian Shiraz Wines, their chemical profiles and the climatic regions from where the grapes were sourced.

“Defining a terroir influence will allow Australian fine wine producers to substantiate uniqueness claims to command premium prices in a global context — this project has shown that this is possible.”

People can register online for the event, which will be held on Wednesday, 28 October from 10 am to 11:30 am AEST.
