gwmThe July 2014 issue of Grapegrower & Winemaker is out now and is available online for all subscribers.

Winter has finally set in so pour yourself a glass of red, light the fire and join us as we discuss the latest in pruning, trellising, spraying and frost management.

This month you’ll find the first of an occasional series looking at high-profile restaurants and why they choose the labels which go on their wine lists.

We also catch up with wine commentator Robert Joseph who talks about the commoditisation of the industry in My View (page 6).

Among these must-read articles include a profile piece on New Zealand Young Gun Matthew Fox who talks about life as NZ’s 2013 Viticulturist of the Year; and a paper by GrapeLinks’ Erika Winter and Stony Creek Vineyard’s Stephen Lowe which summarises score systems and results helping Shiraz growers achieve prime fruit quality (starts page 29).

In addition to this, Grapegrower & Winemaker editor Andrew Mole’s The Big Four sprawls over eight pages and includes insights from top winemakers on what helps set them apart in the Australian wine industry (starts page 62).
