VinSites to provide insights from vine to glass VinSites We recently commenced a pilot for VinSites – a new web-based tool that will allow growers to record their vineyard information and production data. We are working with growers and wineries in Western Australia and the Riverland to link growers’ vineyards, their varieties, their water use and their yields, so that the information is all stored in one place. Over time, growers will be able to compare their performance against earlier years and against regional benchmarks. We are encouraging growers to

A slew of restaurants across the U.S. are on board with the trend this summer.
Meeting consumer demands throughout seasonal variability with an advanced automation and process control solution from Rockwell Automation. The Oxford Landing Estate Vineyard and Winery is named after a site where drovers once grazed and watered sheep. Today it’s home to a loyal flock of down-to-earth folk who take great pride in making quality wines, enjoyed the world over. With 650 acres under vine, Oxford Landing Estate is not small but by micro-managing 130 five-acre blocks as separate ecosystems, the grapes are given exactly what they need to achieve optimum flavour.
The APEC Model Wine Export Certificate, approved by regulatory and trade officials from APEC member economies, will make it simpler and more efficient to trade wine between them by consolidating their existing certificate requirements into a single certificate usable across the region. Focus now turns to supporting implementation of this voluntary, incentive-based measure.

Abstract: The global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol launched in 2010 by the World Health Organization includes, amongst several areas of recommended actions, providing consumer information about, and labelling, alcoholic beverages to indicate alcohol-related harm. Labelling requirements worldwide for alcoholic drinks are currently quite diverse and somewhat limited compared to labelling on food products and on tobacco. In this context, the current paper contributes to the academic and political debate on the inclusion of nutritional and health information on wine labelling, providing some insights into consumer interest

Washington State University Professor Lav Khot prepares to fly the 8-bladed octo-copter over a vineyard to measure how effectively a new irrigation method gets water to the vines. (Photo credit: WSU) The unmanned aerial system (UAS), is an eight-rotor “octo-copter,” and uses high-tech cameras to assess the status of canopy vigor and relate that to irrigation water use and evaporation from grapevines. The flights are part of a long-term Washington State University (WSU) study on subsurface irrigation in vineyards. “We can do measurements on the ground, but they’re time-consuming, laborious,

Malolactic fermentation (MLF) usually takes place after the end of alcoholic fermentation (AF). However, the inoculation of lactic acid bacteria together with yeast starter cultures is a promising system to enhance the quality and safety of wine. In recent years, the use of immobilized cell systems has been investigated, with interesting results, for the production of different fermented foods and beverages. In this study we have carried out the simultaneous immobilization of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Oenococcus oeni in alginate beads and used them in microvinifications tests to produce Negroamaro wine.
