Much like a vineyard, the past 12 months at Australian Vignerons has been a case of nurturing, guiding and watching hard work come to fruition.
In late 2016 the future of Australian Vignerons was in doubt. A combination of financial restraint and continued support from you, our members, has led us to become financially secure for the future.
So what does the future of Australian Vignerons look like? Very positive. We have welcomed a new independent board. Each member of the board has been chosen for their specific skills which will be put to work representing our members in their core areas of concern. Be sure to keep an eye on our social media pages as we profile the board members over the coming months.
The small team at Australian Vignerons is hard at work amplifying the voice of Australian wine grape growers. We have been a key part of the Export and Regional Wine Support Package (read more about this below) and the recent biosecurity concerns surrounding Grapevine Pinot Gris Virus (GPGV). We are also increasing awareness of what we do and are committed to working for the benefit of our members and the wine sector as a whole.
We are here to represent and work for the benefit of all who grow and make wine in Australia. I encourage members to get in touch if you have an idea, issue or concern. Let's work together to enhance the Australian wine industry.
