Grapevine management guide 2017-18

Cover of the grapevine management guide

The 2017–2018 edition of the Grapevine management guide focuses on the alternative and new varieties that are fast becoming more than just the latest fashion trend for inner city wine consumers.

With exports on the rise to Asia due to several free trade agreements and a lower Australian dollar, gaps exist in these and many other marketplaces for examples of NSW-produced Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek varietals outside the varieties that have typically been produced.

This guide provides a broad, balanced approach with input from leading viticulturists in NSW, QLD, SA, VIC and WA, winemakers and researchers on what’s already on the road to success and maybe what’s next.

The guide also includes the chemical appendices and the Australian Wine Research Institute's 'Dog book'.
