Vinehealth Australia is working closely with Wine Yarra Valley to plan an exciting Phylloxera Immersion Tour to the Yarra Valley near the end of the year.

On this trip, attendees will learn first hand about the implications of a phylloxera incursion on a wine business, hear about the social impacts of reporting a detection, see the visual impacts of phylloxera-infested vineyards, find out what science is contributing to industry, hear about the preventative measures you can take now to limit phylloxera spread, and more.

Is this a trip you’re keen to be part of? Watch out for further information from Wine Yarra Valley and Vinehealth Australia in the next week to book your place.
