About the Society

The Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology was founded in 1980 as a non-political organisation to serve the interests of practising winemakers and viticulturists by encouraging the exchange of technical information.

The Society has held over 40 one-day seminars since it was established and, in conjunction with The Australian Wine Research Institute, organises the Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference every three years.

The Society has awarded over 20 scholarships for research and international study visits.

Our membership now exceeds 700 individuals and affiliated companies.
