Vineyard in the Barossa Valley

The last workshop for the first round of the ARC TC-IWP was held last Monday the 7th of August with presentations from all PhD students and Post docs at the Charles Hawker Conference Centre at the Waite Campus. Industry partners and academic colleagues gathered to listen to the presentations and discuss the outcomes of several of the projects.

Following the workshop a group of students and principal supervisors visited Clare Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday. During the trip they visited wineries and vineyards in the area and spoke to the winemakers of Adelina, Grosset, Knappstein and Jim Barry.
