This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Vinehealth Australia in conjunction with Wynns Coonawarra Estate and Coonawarra Vignerons is hosting a free face-to-face field day for the wine industry, with a first-time focus on looking below the soil surface.

Attendance will help you understand the importance of applying variable management strategies to rootstocks to achieve yield and quality outcomes, based on a rootstock’s inherent genetics and ability to access and use soil water.

Join us for a guided vineyard walk to observe a series of soil pits and then to learn more about choosing and managing different rootstocks. For a full agenda, click here.

This project is supported by the Limestone Coast Landscape Board’s Grassroots Grants program and is funded by regional landscape and water levies.


Coffee and muffins are available from 8am with the event commencing at 9am.  Lunch provided. Please advise of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.
