Grape Days 2022 was an exciting and informative day of knowledge sharing and networking for the New Zealand wine industry.
The Bragato Research Institute Extension team worked with our science partners and local industry experts to deliver a program of relevant and thought-provoking research outputs around the theme of Winegrowing in a Changing Environment. Highlights included insights from local grower experts and updates from researchers covering topics such as trunk disease, living with insect pests, alternative pruning options, and managing vines after frost and hail events. The New Zealand Winegrowers Environment team provided updates on vineyard emissions and the rising cost of landfill waste.
Grape Days are provided as part of the research programme funded by the New Zealand Winegrowers’ levy, delivered through Bragato Research Institute. Now in its 14th year, the one-day technical events held in Hawke’s Bay, Marlborough, and Central Otago provide high-level overviews of research with a practical focus to help members apply the findings.
