The New Zealand Syrah Workshop is held biannually to bring together winegrowers in New Zealand to study and improve both viticultural and oenological practices as they apply to the variety Syrah.

The Workshop includes group discussions on current practices, experimental trials being undertaken, and a keynote presentation by an overseas speaker. Each year winemakers taste, discuss and evaluate recent finished vintages and current barrel samples in a collegial environment with the aim of improving the understanding of the Syrah variety, in the absence of the wine media.

Objectives of this workshop include bringing together growers and winemakers to expand and improve the knowledge of the variety. Encouraging the expansion of Syrah plantings as this variety is recognised as one in which New Zealand can excel. Exploring the differences and discuss and exchange ideas and practices in confidence with the aim of improving the quality of the finished wines. Discussion and if appropriate promotion of a New Zealand style to assist in the promoting and marketing of New Zealand Syrah. Keeping abreast of developments and practises in other countries by inviting key overseas speakers to address the Workshop and to accomplish the Workshop aims in a relaxed atmosphere of conviviality with friends and good wines.

I found this website an invaluable tool both in getting my details out to the industry and being aware of what was on offer. I now have a permanent job on Waiheke Island.
