Research to stop smoke taint

University of Adelaide Professor Kerry Wilkinson has been researching smoke taint mitigation in wine grapes for 15 years.

Wine grapes could have a new form of protection against smoke taint thanks to the efforts of a researcher from Nairne.
The Cudlee Creek bushfire’s impact on the Hills was infamous not just for the environmental and human toll but also for its devastation of the local wine industry – it was the worst affected wine region in the 2019/20 bushfire season, with about 30% of production capacity negatively impacted.
