ASVO Announces New President and Changes To Its Board

Mardi Longbottom

The ASVO board recently re-elected Dr Mardi Longbottom for a second term as President. Brett McClen and Prof Mike Trought were also re-elected to the board and were joined by Tony Robinson, previously a co-opted to the ASVO board, and new director, Matt Holdstock. Robinson recently undertook a comprehensive, industry-wide process to update and extend the Wine Show Best Practice Recommendations (BPRs). The new guide has now been released and will be a valuable resource for the various Agricultural Societies, industry bodies, and commercial groups that run the wine shows in Australia.

Holdstock is a Senior Oenologist at the Australian Wine Research Institute where he provides technical advice to winemakers on a daily basis to help solve production issues and provide support for best practice wine production. Matt has judged at several Australian wine shows, and participates in tastings for the AWRI’s sensory panel, the Advanced Wine Assessment Course, Winestate Magazine and Wine Australia’s Export Approval panel (2009-2012). Matt has also lectured at the University of Adelaide, Wine Australia, WSET, the Institute of Masters of Wine and the Interwinery Analysis Group. More.

In 2015, the ASVO joined forces with the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Terry Lee, editor of the Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research, and specially appointed Associate Editor, Markus Herderich have worked tirelessly with Dan Johnson, Ella Robinson and the great majority of the AWRI staff to produce a special edition of the journal. The dedication and enthusiasm of the AWRI staff to this huge task is warmly thanked and provides a compelling series of 18 reviews on topics of relevance to the grape and wine sector.
