AWRI series - Chardonnay winemaking trial tasting

22 January 2020 , 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM  | London


It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that the AWRI series event scheduled for Wednesday 22 January has been cancelled. Due to the bushfires that are wreaking havoc in Australia, Con Simos is unavailable to attend.

The AWRI is owned and funded by the wine industry and they are playing a pivotal role in providing technical support to both grape growers and winemakers across the country. It is Con’s role at the AWRI to coordinate that support response to industry. The situation is such that Con’s focus is now on dealing with fires and smoke taint. Under the circumstances he is unable to be away from the office in Australia, even for a short period.

We greatly appreciate all of the work Con Simos and the AWRI contribute to IMW events and will work towards continuing the series in the future.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. For those who have purchased a ticket fees will be refunded to the account that you paid with.

If you have any questions please contact Belinda Eaton (IMW Events Officer).
