Growing Victorian Wine into the Future Program

Growing Victorian Wine into the Future Program

Support for winemakers looking to the future

Victoria’s grape-growers and winemakers will benefit from a new program, commissioned by Wine Victoria through the Department of Agriculture, providing support to tackle climate change, work sustainably, increase profitability, and keep abreast of market standards.

The Growing Victorian Wine into the Future Program includes a state-wide vineyard health assessment along with a series of regional workshops, tools, and resources available to the industry. Participants will learn more about redevelopment strategies to modernise and optimise vineyards, ways to step up productivity, and the benefits of adopting agtech on-farm. Another major theme of the program is sustainable practices. Participants will develop an understanding on how to extend the fruitful life of vineyards for the longevity of the industry.

The first in the series of education programs is an Introduction to Sustainable Winegrowing Australia and Carbon Calculator Workshop.

This workshop will present a range of drivers for sustainable production and demonstrate the tools and resources available through Sustainable Winegrowing Australia to support the adoption of sustainable practices.

It will explore the user functionality of the Australian Wine Carbon Calculator and discuss the input categories and emissions factors. The workshop will detail life-cycle assessments to better define emissions within the wine industry and some of the mitigation strategies for Viticulture and Winemaking businesses.

Case studies will show how Sustainable Winegrowing Australia members benchmark their greenhouse gas emissions against other members.

The Growing Victorian Wine into the Future Program is funded by the Victorian Government.
