You are invited...

to join Wine Tasmania at VINfo Tasmania 2017 - our annual business & technical forum to be held on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 October 2017 at the Tamar Ridge Cellar Door, 1a Waldhorn Drive, Rosevears.

Day 1 will focus on the business of wine (profitability, branding, marketing, tourism and consumer insights topics) and Day 2 will address production and technical issues (including sustainability, biosecurity, planning and biodiversity topics). The event comprises two days of informative and practical plenary presentations, interactive workshops and benchmark wine tastings, and offers an outstanding opportunity to gain practical information and catch up with colleagues. VINfo Tasmania is not to be missed - with topics of relevance across growers, winemakers, business owners, marketers, cellar door personnel and suppliers.

Presentations will focus on market and consumer insights, cellar door and tourism, brand, economics, profitabiility, sustainability, biosecurity, viticultural and oenology research and more, with presenters including Professor Larry Lockshin - University of South Australia, Phin Ziebell - NABMayur Kairamkonda - Euromonitor, brand / marketing expert & Wine Tasmania Director - Guy TaylorWill Taylor and Mathew Brittingham - both from FinlaysonsDr Paul Smith - Australian Wine Research Institute, Inca Pearce - Vinehealth Australia, Sam Schapp - Biosecurity Tasmania, the Van Diemen Project and many more, with case studies, interactive workshops and benchmark wine tastings.

AND we want to hear from you!  On both days of the event, there will be a panel discussion. One Day 1 we ponder the question "What will the Tasmanian wine sector look like in 10 years and what are the key opportunities and challenges to be addressed?" On Day 2, the panel will discuss: "How can we maintain and build wine quality and technical expertise in the Tasmanian wine sector?"  Both panel discussions provide an opportunity for an interactive discussion on the future of the Tasmanian wine sector and your questions and comments are welcome. 

The draft program is available as a snapshot or detailed version (subject to change). 


On the evening of Tuesday 3 October, you're invited to the VINfo Tasmania Drinks & Canapés @ Tamar Ridge for a relaxed and informal opportunity to socialise with colleagues over some great wine and canapés. Please note that transport will be provided from the venue back to the Launceston CBD (if you want to leave your car behind!), with a further bus provided for your trip back to Rosevears again the next morning.
