2024 Australian Cabernet Symposium

We're excited to share the highlights of the recent 2024 Australian Cabernet Symposium (ACS), which took place on February 1st and 2nd. This year, we had the pleasure of hosting day two of the event alongside our esteemed colleagues from Coonawarra and Margaret River, marking a significant collaboration in the world of wine.

Under the theme "Supporting Cabernet Sauvignon into the Future," the ACS gathered over 150 attendees for two days of insightful discussions, interactive masterclasses, and live demonstrations of cutting-edge wine agtech.

Our vineyard manager, Hans Loder, played a pivotal role in showcasing the integration of agtech in vineyard management during day two of the symposium. Live demonstrations showcased the potential of advanced devices such as drones and infrared sensors in optimizing Cabernet Sauvignon production.

Dr. Catherine Kidman, serving as the ACS Committee Chair, expressed her delight at the turnout, emphasizing the valuable networking opportunities and knowledge exchange among attendees from various regions across Australia. The presentations, ranging from groundbreaking research to innovative winemaking techniques, offered valuable insights into the past, present, and future of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Day one featured nine global Cabernet experts sharing their expertise in research, viticulture, and winemaking. Keynote speakers Rodrigo Laytte and Phil Brodie headlined the event, with presentations streamed live from Margaret River and Coonawarra, accompanied by engaging panel discussions.

We extend our gratitude to Wine Australia's Regional Program, Limestone Coast Grape & Wine Council Inc, and our sponsors for their invaluable support in making the ACS possible.

In conclusion, the 2024 Australian Cabernet Symposium was a testament to the collaborative spirit and commitment to excellence within the Cabernet community. We look forward to continued collaboration and innovation as we navigate the exciting future of Cabernet Sauvignon.
