Dear Members,

On 7th and 8th September 2022, 2 grower meetings were held, in conjunction with Accolade Wines, to openly discuss industry conditions and vintage 2023 requirements.

We have received requests on providing details or feedback from these grower meetings.

Please find attached the Accolade letter, which was discussed in detail by Derek Nicol, at the meeting, as well as notes taken at the meeting, on the discussions.

Please note we are still in negotiation with Accolade on the V23 requirements and are planning to be back in communication with our members ASAP, with an update.
