The great majority of Riverland growers are members of the Wine Grape Growers Australia (WGG), the federal organisation. The WGGA invites applications from growers to attend the Vinitech-Sifel international trade show in Bordeaux, France, from December 2-4 this year, as a VIP guest of the organisers.
A group of 8–10 will make the journey, and anyone interested should hurry. Applications have just opened and will close on 21 September 2014. This opportunity has very generously been negotiated through Promosalons, the Australian agent promoting this event.
Vinitech-Sifel is an international exhibition of equipment and innovations for the wine industry and the fruit and vegetable sector.
There are more than 850 exhibitors (representing 1200 brands including 30% international) over an exhibition area of 65,000 sqm. Of interest to grapegrowers, on show will be:
- Tillage and maintenance equipment
- Nursery and planting equipment
- Spraying equipment
- Crop protection products
- Vine pruning and maintenance equipment
- Harvesting equipment
- Pesticides and fertilisers
