Solutions for the wine industry and fire and land managers.
Fact sheets developed from a comprehensive research and development program to improve the wine industry's knowledge of how smoke impacts wine.
Scientists are aiming to develop a web-based risk assessment tool to help growers determine the potential risk of smoke taint in grapes and wine as a result of controlled burning or bushfires.
5 fact sheets have been developed.
Fact sheets are downloadable as PDFs. (Note: these documents do not meet WCAG 2.0 accessibility guidelines)
