The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI), is owned by us, the Australian Wine Industry. Best known for its research work at ‘The Waite’, the institute offers a range of services to growers and wine makers. Dr Simon Nordestgaard has asked us to assist in developing some regional benchmarks. It’s in the form of a survey; not difficult but it will take about 45 minutes.
Simon says: The survey will allow winegrowers and winemakers to compare their practices with regional and national trends (individual results will be treated with strict confidentiality).
The survey will contribute information to industry research, development and extension projects so they can be best tailored to suit individual regions.
As an incentive, Simon is offering participants a chance to win a trip to Bordeaux, France to attend the Vinitech-Sifel 2016 vineyard and winery equipment trade show in November.
The survey is available here, and closes on 22 September.
