The article provides information on EntWine Australia, the voluntary national environmental assurance scheme for grapegrowers and winemakers in Australia. The basis of the certification scheme is the national Freshcare Environmental Code, an on-farm assurance program that focuses on required farm practices that ensure that environmental care was used in the growth and packing of produce. The Winemakers' Federation of Australia developed the scheme. The indicators for wineries according to the program are discussed.
