The article examines the potential impact of the proposed carbon tax by the Australian government on the country's wine industry. Among the challenges of the proposed tax include the difficulty for businesses to adapt their models of operation to maintain domestic and international competitiveness, penalty for carbon emissions, and increased energy bills. Emphasis is given on the need for winegrape growers to use their energy resources and inputs to reduce carbon pricing. The carbon pricing scheme is hoped to add to Australia's environmental management.
