ASVO Announces Wine Industry Awards for Excellence

Two research papers received awards at the ASVO Annual Awards for Excellence in November 2016.

The winning viticulture paper Vineyard irrigation scheduling based on airborne thermal imagery and water potential thresholds by Joaquim Bellvert, Pablo Zarco-Tejada, Jordi Marsal, Joan Girona, Victoria González-Dugo and Elias Fereres appealed to the judging panel because it will enable practitioners to refine current irrigation practices particularly in a water constrained future.

The best oenology paper Effect of oxygen exposure during fermentation on volatile sulfur compounds in Shiraz wine and a comparison of strategies for remediation of reductive character by Marlize Bekker, Martin Day, Helen Holt, Eric Wilkes and Paul Smith from the Australian Wine Research Institute was selected because of the potential for high rates of immediate adoption in winemaking.

ASVO fellows honoured

Brian Croser AO and Di Davidson AM have been honoured by Dr Mardi Longbottom, president of the ASVO, for their particularly outstanding and meritorious contribution to the grape and wine industry and to the Society by being admitted as fellows.

“Selection was particularly difficult this year because of the extremely high calibre of individuals nominated for our Fellows program," said Dr Longbottom. "For the first time more than one member was recommended by the selection committee. The collective wisdom that both these people encapsulate is extraordinary as is the diversity of background and experience.”

The ASVO Fellowships were deservedly awarded during the Awards for Excellence Dinner at the Adelaide Botanic gardens restaurant on Thursday 17 November 2016.
