Highlights

The Tenth Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference was held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, Sydney, NSW between 2-5 August 1998.

Nearly 1400 delegates attended this event to listen to presentations over the four days. The formal programme featured over 50 speakers, 9 from overseas. A record 137 posters were

displayed and selected posters were used in 12 poster break out sessions.

Running alongside the Conference was a large trade exhibition. This year’s exhibition was the largest ever held for the Australian wine industry: it attracted 105 exhibitors and covered 5000 m2 of floor space.

On the Sunday evening, all delegates were invited to a Welcome Reception in the trade exhibition area. This provided delegates with an opportunity to renew acquaintances and to familiarise themselves with the exhibition area and the whole convention centre. On the Tuesday evening, 900 delegates and partners attended a Dinner and enjoyed remarkably good food, fine Australian wine and excellent company. During the evening the guests were entertained by comedian, Brian Doyle.

Whilst all of the formal presentations have been reproduced in full in the Conference proceedings, a brief overview of the presentations is listed below:

Strategy 2025 – how do we do it?
Australian wine – securing its future
The next 30 years – are we ready?

The Conference was opened on Sunday, 2 August by the Commonwealth’s Chief Scientist, Dr John Stocker. The first session, Strategy 2025 – how do we do it? examined the Australian wine industry’s thirty year strategy document. Paul van der Lee, Mitchelton Wines, explained the critical elements of the strategy document, and gave indications to the delegates of what they need to do to achieve the targets. Nigel Sneyd gave an ex-patriate’s viewpoint of the influence that the Australian industry wields overseas, particularly in Europe. James Lovell, Mildara Blass, examined the way the industry could quantify its competitiveness, and discussed what actually makes up a competitive product. These presentations were followed by three speakers who addressed Australia’s ‘competitive environments’. Professor Peter Høj, The Australian Wine Research Institute, compared the Australian wine industry’s research and development effort (and investment) and contrasted that with overseas wine industries and other Australian agricultural-based industries. David Wollan, Wine Network Australia, discussed the difficult topic of human resource development. Amongst other issues, David presented information from the Australian Bureau of Statistics and extrapolated these to 2025, then aligned these with current levels of output from the main ‘industry’ educational institutions. The first session concluded with Peter Wall’s presentation which discussed the impact of regulations in the Australian wine industry and compared these with regulations in Europe and USA.

The second session was entitled Australian wine – securing its future. Greg Rice, Clemenger Adelaide, addressed the 2025 objective of increasing per capita wine consumption from 18.3 litres per head to 22, by the year 2025. Greg gave some stimulating solutions to this objective. Challenges in the global market was presented by Robin Day, Pernod Ricard. Robin’s presentation focussed on the challenges from a technical perspective including areas where technical issues interface with other facets of the industry. Bill Moularadellis, Kingston Estate, gave a ‘case history’ study of his winery, Kingston Estate, and the evolution of image of the Riverland region. The first international speaker, Robert Nicholson, International Wine Associates Inc., from USA, concluded the second sessions by presenting a very interesting comparison between Australia and Bordeaux, from an American perspective.

The Sunday’s sessions finished with a colloquium entitled The next thirty years – are we ready? presented by Phil Ruthven, Ibis Business Information Pty Ltd. Phil gave an enthralling and thought-provoking presentation over an hour, discussing the economic and social challenges facing the wine industry over the next thirty years.

Specifications
Leading edge molecular biology
Will consumers accept gene technology? Will industry adopt it?

Zelma Long, Moet Hennessy California Wineries, USA, commenced the fifth session discussing specifications and using them as a team approach to quality. Dr Leigh Francis, The Australian Wine Research Institute, gave a presentation on the Glycosyl-glucose assay developed at the Institute, and its role in specifying fruit flavour potential. Specifications for desired colour, phenolics and tannins in wine was presented by Dr Graham Jones from the Department of Horticulture, Viticulture and Oenology, The University of Adelaide. Russell Johnstone, Orlando Wyndham, gave a presentation entitled Vineyard variability – is it important? and discussed vineyard specifications and variability within vineyards. Alex Sas, The Australian Wine Research Institute, gave a lively presentation discussing the role of irrigation in the salinity issue and how to meet a salt specification. The session concluded with Peter Godden, The Australian Wine Research Institute, discussing how to measure desirable oakwood components in wine. Peter discussed the new analytical technique developed at the Institute to identify the potential of individual oak to impart desirable oak compounds into wine.

Leading edge molecular biology was the title of session 6. Professor Peter Høj gave an informative and ‘lay’ overview of gene technology which set the scene for the following speakers. The fourth international speaker, Professor Isak Pretorius, Institute of Wine Biotechnology, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, discussed the potential application of gene technology in winemaking which was complemented by Dr Simon Robinson, CSIRO Plant Industry, who gave a presentation entitled Application of gene technology in viticulture. The next two presentations fell under the heading Molecular diagnostics and Dr John Skerritt, CSIRO Plant Industry, presented information on new approaches for residue detection by the Australian wine industry and Dr Eileen Scott, Department of Crop Protection, The University of Adelaide, discussed molecular approaches in the study of grapevine pathogens and pests.

The Tuesday sessions were concluded with a colloquium entitled Will consumers accept gene technology? Will industry adopt it? This topic was addressed by academics, a consumer advocate, a commercial operator and a retailer. The first presentation was given by Professor Nancy Millis, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, The University of Melbourne. Her lively and entertaining presentation addressed the regulatory frameworks (current and proposed) that make up the pathways for genetically modified products to move from the laboratory to commercialisation. This was followed by a topic called Consumer concerns, what are they and are they being addressed, which was delivered by Dr Loane Skene, Department of Law, The University of Adelaide. Both Dr Skene and Professor Millis are members of the Genetic Manipulation Advisory Committee and their presentations were very informative. The consumers’ point of view was then expressed by Carole Renouf, Australian Consumers’ Association, wherein she discussed whether consumers can move from reaction to acceptance with genetically modified foods. Dr John Smeaton, BresaGen Ltd gave a case study of his organisation’s attempt to commercialise a genetically modified foodstuff. The sessions’ presentations concluded with Geoff Brown, Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd, United Kingdom, giving Sainsbury’s experiences in the retailing of genetically modified products. These speakers were joined by Paul van der Lee, Peter Wall and Dr Simon Robinson to form a discussion panel that fielded questions from the delegates.
