The ASVO Efficiency and Sustainability in the Winery seminar is fast approaching and the ASVO program committee lead by Alan Hoey, would like to personally invite you to support this event. We believe that the combination of presenting new and innovative technology along with personal experiences from early adopters make a compelling business case for winemakers and wine-savvy viticulturists to attend.


The program includes four sessions over two days. The first session covers cold stability and will feature Julian Alcorso from Winemaking Tasmania speaking on the use of Electrodialysis, Manuel Travers from Spain discussing continuous contact stabilisation use in Europe and Eric Wilkes from the AWRI on Carboxymethyl Cellulose. The second session; Challenging the Winemaking Norms, will include James Erskine from the Jauma Winery presenting on Low Intervention Winemaking and Robin Brockett from Scotchmans Hill who will cover his experiences using innovative mechanical harvesting technology as a substitute for hand picking. The third session is about “Embracing New Winemaking Technology” and will include Toby Barlow from St Hallets who will compare Juice Flotation to Cold Settling and Luke Wilson from Yalumba who will speak on Cross Flow Lees Filtration. The final session is titled “Improving Quality and Efficiency” through innovation, speakers will include Dennis Taylor from the University of Adelaide speaking on Smart Bungs and John Ide from Yalumba speaking about automated barrel handling. In addition a number of key suppliers will be showcasing some of the new winemaking technology being presented in a mini-trade exhibition during the seminar.
