First joint forum for wine grape growers
In a first for the region’s winegrape growers, Murray Valley Winegrowers (MVW) has teamed with the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) to present an information forum on June 11. AWRI speakers will fill the morning session with presentations on issues affecting vineyard management and grape quality. MVW takes over for the afternoon program, focusing on topics that will give growers further insights into future prospects. “With this year’s vintage delivering some of the lowest average prices in 10 years, growers who want a future in the industry are desperate for information that helps in their decision-making,” Mike Stone, MVW executive officer, said.
