Australia’s only Cabernet Sauvignon conference, the Australian Cabernet Symposium (ACS), returns for the fourth time on Thursday 1 and Friday 2 February 2024.

Traditionally hosted by Coonawarra Grape and Wine Incorporated (CGWI) in South Australia’s Coonawarra, in 2024 the symposium is presented in association with Wines of Western Australia (WoWA) and sees the joining of forces of Australia’s premier Cabernet Sauvignon producing regions, Coonawarra and Margaret River.

On day one, presentations and masterclasses will be simulcast live to and from the ACS hub at Parker Coonawarra Estate and at the Margaret River Heart satellite venue for our Western Australian audience and will be followed by dinners in both states. Day two, occurring in Coonawarra only, gives attendees the opportunity to see first-hand the latest in viticultural and winemaking innovations out in the vineyard at the Penley Agtech Field Walk.



The 2024 Australian Cabernet Symposium (ACS) is presented by the

Coonawarra Vignerons in conjunction with Wines of Western Australia.

Organisers extend their sincere thanks to the Event Sponsors for their in kind and financial contributions.
Event attendees are encouraged to support these businesses and industry partners that have supported the 2024 ACS event, without whom this event would not be possible.
