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

Spring is finally here so pull out that dusty hammock, sit back and join us as we discuss the latest in irrigation, pressing and crushing, oak alternatives and education among others.

This month you’ll find an in-depth analysis on the social media world and how wine businesses can get the most out of platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. This eight-page news feature includes insights and handy hints from marketing and communications specialists and a range of university PhDs.

We also catch up with Taylor’s Wines’ Mitchell Taylor who is the boss and chairman of Australia’s First Families of Wine. He reflects on the way his company and coalition are not just waiting for wine’s second coming, but are out there drumming up their own business.

Among these must-read articles include a profile piece on New Zealand Young Gun Matt Duggan, a research paper on preventing the haze in wine by AWRI scientist Jacqui McRae and a bottling feature on a global manufacturer that plans to revive the cork Down Under.

In addition to this, Grapegrower & Winemaker caught up with Wolf Blass ahead of his 80th birthday bash and discussed his 57-year career in the industry, his secret to success and where he thinks the Australian wine industry is heading.
