You are warmly invited to join us at the BRI Research Winery Open Day 2021 to celebrate the ‘Science of Winemaking’.

We have an exciting programme of five short presentations that provide insights and findings from trials in the BRI research winery last year

NMIT Viticulture Lecturer Stewart Field will share the findings from his trial that studied the effect of hang-time during berry ripening combined with post-ferment maceration time on the quality of Pinot noir wine.  This trial was completed in collaboration with Lawson’s Dry Hills and BRI.

 Bio-Start CEO Jerome Demmer will present their trial that looked at the outcomes for Pinot Noir block (Able clone) where vines had received a BioStart programme of Mycorrcin and Digester (soil biostimulants) and Foliacin (plant foliar health biostimulant) over the past three years.

Constellation Brands Head of Laboratories, Research & Development Frank Benkwitz will share outcomes from their testing of different fruits and rates over a series of trials using fruit co-ferments with Pinot Noir fruit.

Bragato Research Winemaker Tanya Rutan will be presenting results on behalf of yeast and fermentation ingredient company Fermentis from their trial examining different antioxidants and their overall effects on the quality of Sauvignon Blanc wines.

Xiuying (Ava) Liang an NMIT student and member of the BRI Research Winery team will speak about her experience and positive findings from trialling a new weedmat and mussel shell alternative to herbicide weed control in fertile soils.

Please register for Thursday Oct 21 1pm – 3pm below.
