In less than two months Australia will have a carbon tax.

The controversial tax, which is a prelude to creating a carbon trading market, is designed to force businesses to lower their emissions of carbon dioxide.

Business has known the tax is coming for some time but not everyone has been getting prepared.

One business that has been getting organised is Tamburlaine organic wines, based in the wine making region, the Hunter Valley.

They've been undergoing an energy audit since December 2010.

Presenter: Wayne Shields

Speaker: Mark Davidson, CEO and chief winemaker at Tamburlaine organic wines
