When it was launched in London, AWBC
was expecting a few hundred industry folks to attend, but the event was packed to maximum standing room capacity, a sign that Australia's largest export markets are on tenterhooks to find out what the plan is.
In 1984 a local grower proposed a more extensive region, to be called "Penola", not Coonawarra, while in March 1992 an even more extensive proposal was submitted to the AWBC.
CGGA) submitted an application to the AWBC for a regional ascription which was based on the "cigar" but excluded the town of Penola and included a number of detached "islands" of peripheral vineyards to the east and south.
Second, the New England Australia region was derived from the preexisting 'Northern Slopes' region, and it is classified by the AWBC as a subregion of the larger Northern Slopes area.
Further, the Wine Grapes Marketing Board's analysis of the flaws in the market was expressed in its summation of the Wine Restructuring Action Agenda (WRAA) proposed by the WFA [Winemakers Federation of Australia], AWBC [Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation; now Wine Australia], Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation (GWRDC) and Wine Grape Growers Australia (WGGA):
The Center for Women's Leadership (CWL) at Babson College will conduct this study for the AWBC, which awarded Babson $50,000 to design and conduct a survey among the leaders of women's business centers.
Says AWBC President & CEO, Ann Marie Almeida, "This unprecedented, grassroots and comprehensive research will help us to better understand who our Centers serve, how we are serving them now, and what new tools and resources these Centers will need to better fulfill their missions.
The NWBC will assist the AWBC in developing outreach, educational, advocacy materials, and activities which may flow from the research results.
