On 25 May 2021, the National Wine Sector Bushfire Conference continued the important conversations around Australia’s experiences with fire and delivered the findings of recent research to help our community better prepare for future fires.

Prepare, respond and recover were the themes of the day, with grape and wine producers and leading researchers presenting on bushfire preparedness, smoke effects and recovery from fire to ensure that grapegrowers, winemakers and businesses are better prepared, better informed and better equipped to handle the decisions that need to be made before, during and after bushfires. 

The conference comprised a wide range of in-depth presentations, research updates, practical bushfire preparedness, and best practice techniques for smoke effects and recovery from fire.
