A term that sprang up in the 1980s to describe a group of winemakers, chiefly Australian, that parachuted (not literally!) into Old World regions to work with local co-operatives or vignerons to improve the quality of the wines. They could work a vintage in the northern hemisphere without interfering with work back home in the southern hemisphere, where the harvest occurs six months earlier.
