Trust provides funding for initiatives to benefit NZ wine

‘Trust provides funding for two initiatives to benefit New Zealand wine industry’
 
The Cresswell Jackson New Zealand Wine Trust has awarded funding for two University of Otago projects, both designed to benefit the country’s wine industry.
 
The first was awarded to Associate Professor David J Burritt of the Department of Botany to undertake research concerning the process of extracting phenolics during the winemaking process. Professor Burritt said, "The wine industry is incredibly important to the New Zealand economy. We are very grateful to receive this grant, which will be used to support our research investigating the potential for pulsed electric fields (PEF) technology to be used in the New Zealand wine industry."
 
The second successful application was from the Centre for Science Communication, Stuart Professor of Science Communication, Lloyd Spencer Davis, to look into how the industry can better communicate the positive part that science plays in the creation of quality wines. Professor Davis said, “I am thrilled to receive funding from the Cresswell Jackson New Zealand Wine Trust. This support will allow us to film key components of a documentary that showcases the science and innovation of the New Zealand Wine Industry.”
 
The Cresswell Jackson New Zealand Wine Trust was set up by the directors of Wine Competition Ltd to receive proceeds from auctioning unopened bottles of wine not required during the judging of the company’s two wine shows – the Spiegelau International Wine Competition and the Marlborough Wine Show.
