Water usage: What can vineyards and wineries do to improve efficiency and reduce their water footprint?

This is a recording from our Sustainability in the Vineyard  online conference that took place on 22nd June, 2021.

Water use reduction is vital for many reasons. Climate impacts via energy use is one. Another is localised or regional shortages. The wine industry has not always been the most efficient user of water, amongst many others. So what does best practice in water management mean, how is it best done, what are the benefits and outcomes?
