Storyline


The wine production capacity in one of the world's most famous wine-producing regions has been wiped out by devastating bushfires that has lasted for months in south Australia.

The Adelaide Hills, one of south Australia's most farmed areas, was hit the hardest by fires that burned through much of the state.

Thousands of hectares of farmland were lost to fires in the region, including the grapevines of the Adelaide Hills' renowned wineries.

"The bushfire initially came from what we called the west, and it entered on two fronts coming from the northwest and the southwest. During the fire, I felt some fear. What I did during the fire was trying to protect my vineyard as much as I could," Mark Carson, one of the local vineyard owners recalled the scene. Over 80 percent of his vineyard was affected by the blaze.

Hamish Laurie, Adelaide Hills regional chairman of Wine Grape Council of South Australia, said over 20 percent of the region's 300 grape growers were hit by the disaster.

"This bushfire, we have 65 that have been affected. Some are families, and some are companies. We are still calculating the exact damage, but we have an estimate of 680 hectares. We just still finalizing, it could be 50 percent that is damaged. So that assessment period, the assessment of damage is still ongoing. It will take three to four years to be fully recovered for the worst affected areas," he said.

It is estimated that one third of the region's vineyard production may have been wiped out by the brutal fires. And the irrigation system was also destroyed.
