Abstract

As part of the Queensland Wine Industry Action Plan developed by the Queensland Government and the Queensland Wine Industry Association, many wine growers throughout the state’s growing regions now have the opportunity to work together for the benefit of the state’s wine industry. By working closely with regional associations many growers benefit from spending time with their colleagues who have the same goals...to continuously improve local growing practices and resultant wine quality. An important medium facilitating growers’ interaction are the ‘Vineyard Walks’, conducted periodically throughout the year. Vineyard walks entail a visit to the vineyard of a grower and the discussion of a topical issue pertinent to vineyard management at any given time of the season, and expert presenters are also invited to speak to the grower group. Vineyard walks are coordinated by Mark Deegenaars, the Wine Industry Development Officer for the Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation.
