Technical Committee

Technical Committee

The WSTA Wine and Spirit Technical Committee considers and discusses a wide range of technical issues impacting the wine and spirit trade right through the supply chain, from the raw material growing in the field to the finished product in the glass.


Key Issues:

The Committee aims to:

  • provide a knowledgeable and collaborative environment to discuss often complex or sensitive technical issues.
  • develop best practice guidance on key technical issues of interest to member companies.
  • gather expert advice and opinion to support government departments in developing their technical policy, and in their negotiations with international partners.
  • support the continued professional development of members by organising a range of external speakers to update on novel techniques or current topics of interest.

Current Chairman: Ian Rogerson, Co-operative Group
