The pandemic hit the Southern Hemisphere during the grape harvest: find out how the vitivinicultural sector adapted to the situation on a short notice to ensure the continuity of the harvest, what means and tools were implemented and what consequences it had.
In the current situation, it is the role and privilege of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) to help inform and support the wine sector. The OIV relies on an international panel of experts from 47 countries and works on sharing and disseminating good practices throughout the world.
Moderated by Antonio Graça, Secretary of the Sustainable Development and Climate Change experts group of the OIV (Portugal), this webinar will bring together five speakers from Argentina, Australia, Chile, New Zealand and South Africa who will discuss the challenges of management of the COVID 19 crisis at grape harvest time in Southern Hemisphere.
