Winetech 2020 Workshops for Senior Cellar Assistants - Robertson

The Winetech 2020 workshop for senior cellar assistants was recently presented in Robertson by Rianco Van Rooyen, winemaker of Robertson Co-operative Winery. Cellar assistants representing estates and cellars from Worcester and Robertson learned more about the influence of production costs, winemaking faults, production losses and spoilage on cellar profits. Some of the aspects discussed included the calculation of product and production costs; the calculation of profit and the selling price; costs of packaging materials, as well as the different levies which must be paid by the cellars.
