Bushfire & Smoke Science Information

Chatham House Rules and no media present. Wine producers only.

This will be an 'internal' briefing for wine sector representatives and there will not be any media in attendance. We have invited a representative from the Tasmanian Government to attend, but all discussions and questions will be kept confidential.
