With 'harvest' the word on people’s lips at the moment, a full report on the 2014 vintage will be published in the next issue of Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker.

In February our local federal member Tony Pasin MP met with the management committee of Riverland Wine in Loxton to discuss a range of issues challenging our industry. 

On Thursday this week a taskforce, from the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet will brief local organisations and others about the forthcoming White Paper to be prepared by the federal government on the competitiveness of the Australian Agriculture Sector.

As we near the end of vintage it’s time to review outcomes - breakfast meetings are planned for the end of the month.

Very soon after you read this, Riverland Wine will be hosting one of the largest and most influential tour groups ever to visit the region.

As we near the end of harvest, having decided what to do and what not to do about “post harvest” treatments, now is the time to ensure that your car has been serviced, and the car fridge is in good order.  Some fridges may need re-gassing and this should be done before heading off on a break.  

The board, the Chief Executive and Senior Management of the SA Tourism Commission spent 2 days in the Riverland last week conducting a normal Board meeting and visiting many of our region’s special places, hidden gems and tourism industry operators.

Riverland wineries including Angoves, Kingston Estates, Growers Wine Group (Waikerie), Salena Estates and Oxford landing, together with a host of brands that use Riverland fruit, were showcased at Europe’s leading wine fair in Düsseldorf, Germany last week. 

Post-harvest treatment of vines (continued...)
Previous reminders have covered post-harvest nutrition and fungicide considerations. The Following are some additional suggestions:

Growers with unwanted chemicals only have a few days left to register them for this year’s collection in South Australia. Commencing in May, ChemClear will be travelling around the state collecting unwanted and out-of-date agvet chemicals.
