ARC Training Centre for Innovative Wine Production workshop at the 2016 Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference

With demand for Australian Cabernet Sauvignon on the rise globally, the question of what defines Australian regions and styles remains compelling.  The workshop will focus on commercial wines of different styles from four diverse regions, showcasing important flavour compounds, discussing sensory attributes, and exploring the relationship between grape and wine composition and how it can be manipulated.  Additionally, the workshop will present results from various projects on Cabernet Sauvignon related to berry shrivel, managing wine alcohol under challenging conditions and more!

The workshop will be held on Sunday 21 July 2019 and registration is essential.  Further AWITC workshop information is available here.

PhD/Masters students and postdoctoral researchers will present their ARC TC-IWP research to AWITC attendees through a series of posters on display throughout the conference.  These posters cover research on a range of topics from viticultural practices, wine microbiology, process engineering, wine chemistry and sensory science.
