db green issue out now8th January, 2013 by db_staff
The drinks business’ annual green issue is out, with our most comprehensive look ever at the commercial impact of environmentally friendly initiatives.
From producers installing solar panels to logistics firms in search for more efficient ways to ship wine around the world and UK merchants keen to minimise their own environmental impact, the balance between good intentions and good business sense is crucial to get right.
With water management one of the most pressing issues for vineyard managers around the world, Sally Easton MW examines the latest developments in irrigation practices.
This month also sees db shine the spotlight on Australia, highlighting the new generation of wines that are currently emerging from Down Under – not to mention how these are being received in a UK market that has been slow to recognise the exciting evolution taking place.
Finally, we report on the recent Guala Closures Anti-Counterfeiting Seminar, take a look at the burgeoning wine production in evidence on the East Coast of the US and help you to get the most out of 2013 with our round up of this year’s major drinks trade exhibitions.
