Barossa vignerons are working together to restore native vegetation across the landscape.

Many of our wildlife species are in decline. We face a hotter, drier climate which stresses our environment and wine grape production.

The Barossa Wildlife for Wine Project encourages improved vineyard ecology through habitat restoration and good management. Wildlife can play positive ecology roles contributing to a more resilient and productive Barossa landscape.

Barossa Grape & Wine Association would like to thank all the participants in this initiative as well as the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board for their generous support.
