Bragato Research Institute is delighted to welcome WineWorks as a sponsor for its Research Winery in Marlborough. WineWorks has signed on to sponsor the bottling room and bottling equipment for five years.

Like much of the equipment at BRI’s Research Winery, the bottling line is specially made for the research environment, allowing trials to cover the entire production cycle from receiving grapes through to a finished bottled product.

“Bragato Research Institute is an outstanding resource for the wine industry. We hope that supporting their work will contribute to key research outcomes which benefit the wider industry,” says WineWorks general manager Damien Gillman.

“We are delighted to have the support of WineWorks as a sponsor. Sponsorship contributions are an important revenue stream for the winery, supporting us to continue our research work for industry.  It’s also a valued relationship with a world-class operator, where we know we’ll be able to add value to each other’s operations,” says BRI’s chief executive Jeffrey Clarke.

WineWorks operates nine bottling lines between plants in Marlborough, Hawke’s Bay and Auckland, with a total bottling capacity of 120,000 cases per day.
