Tracking trends in Australian wine composition and vineyard and winery practices

This project will track trends in Australian wine composition and vineyard and winery practices. Compositional trends will principally be monitored by collating analytical data from wines submitted to the Australian Wine Research Institute’s analytical laboratories for commercial analysis. Trends in production practices will principally be monitored via a web-based survey of vineyard and winery practices performed at approximately five-yearly intervals, supplemented by visits to a range of producers and industry bodies, to consult and gain additional perspectives on the compiled data.

These analyses will be distributed to industry via a range of extension mechanisms such as industry and academic journals, annual reports, roadshows, and presentations in various other industry forums. The knowledge generated will allow grape and wine producers to compare their wines and practices with regional and national trends, and to better understand the impact of vintage conditions on the composition and style of their wines.

A Common Approach for Commodity-Sector-Level GHG Accounting for Australian Agriculture

The broad aim of this cross-sectoral project is to develop a common framework for greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting that is transparent, trusted and relevant for Australia and can be broadly adopted across all agricultural industries.

The development of a national, grape-industry strategy for the implementation of a national standard for grapevine certification - Phase 1

The lack of a national standard for the health of planting material in Australia means that growers have no guarantee that the planting material being supplied to them by nurseries is disease free or of a certain provenance. Phase 1 of this project will address the framework required to underpin a new national standard for grapevine planting material, which will be customer-focused, independently audited, transparent, aspirational, inclusive and allow for continuous improvement.

Validation and implementation of an early warning system to reduce smoke impacts from prescribed burns and bushfires on agricultural industries in Victoria

This project will develop a fully integrated network of air quality sensors to provide real-time data on smoke dose and the risk of smoke taint in winegrapes. Accurate prediction of the doses which cause smoke taint will enable the emergency sector to organise and conduct planned burns more effectively and with less risk to agricultural industries, particularly the wine industry.
