Research Fields & Publications

What research fields does the Univeristy of Adelaide Wine Future Network cover?

Key research activities of the UAWF can be divided into three research fields: Knowing our Wine, Knowing our Markets and Sustainability. These are then divided into further research categories (see table below for links into each category).

Knowing Our Wine

Understanding the relationship between grapevine biology and terroir in Australia, and the development of options for managing this relationship in response to climate change, and the options at all stages of wine production to enhance quality.

Knowing Our Markets

Changing demographics of wine consumption and in particular fine wine consumption and knowledge of all participants in the wine value chain, by systematically considering the influencers of decision-making within and along the value system for wine.


Options for industry responses at all levels to environmental change such as water scarcity, increased temperature and risks of extreme events region by region, and the returns to research and development.
