Australian Wildfires Scorch a Third of Vineyards in Adelaide Hills

Jan 3, 2020

(Winespectator) - More than 60 vineyards and wineries have been impacted as massive fires burn across Australia.

Vintners in the Adelaide Hills wine region of South Australia are assessing their vineyards and properties after a deadly bushfire swept through the region late last month. More than 60 vineyards and wineries have been impacted, with some vintners losing all of their grapes just a few months before the start of the harvest.

The blazes are part of hundreds of wildfires that have burned across the continent for several months now. Record temperatures combined with ongoing droughts and high winds have made this one of the nation's most serious fire seasons ever.
