Conference: The Influence of France on the Australian Wine Industry
Date: 18 Nov 2022, 6:30pm - 7:30pm (GMT+09:30) Adelaide
From the earliest days of the first colony, British settlers wanted to establish vineyards in Australia but, with enthusiasm proving no substitute for experience they looked to France for guidance. In the nineteenth century the fledgling industry benefited greatly from French experience, from French viticultural manuals and advice from French experts to individual visits to French vineyards. This conference reviews the contribution of France to the development of the Australian wine industry.
