The inaugural Wine Tasmania Winemaker Symposium (TBC) has been put together in acknowledgment that there are a growing number of winemakers and wineries in Tasmania. Some of these winemakers come from diverse backgrounds and may not necessarily have formal winemaking education. The Symposium will, hopefully, become an annual event and provide insights in to the latest tools, techniques and theories relevant to cool climate wine styles. The 2018 Symposium will (potentially) centre around the topics of:
- Wild fermentation and regionality
- Aroma compounds in cool climate whites
- Malolactic fermentation, are there benefits in delaying?
- Reducing lees volume through processing choices
The final program, venue and times are yet to be finalised. Watch this space for further details as they become available, closer to the event and to register your attendance.
