Just sacch. Any "killer" wine strain will eliminate any sacch and most wild yeasts within a couple days. Part of why champagne yeast is such a nice bottling yeast. Brett, of course, is some sort of hybrid of cockroaches and the villains from all the Terminator sequels; it can survive acid, high ABV, killer yeast and lurk in scratched plastic until it's ready to rise up and destroy your beer.
Vinnie Cilurzo said most neighboring winemakers would refuse to visit Russian River out of fear that they would unwittingly carry Brett back to their wineries. Supposedly, if you get Brett into your winery, it's essentially impossible to get it back out without pursuing a scorched earth policy. Nice to know that we can just use bleach on the homebrew level.
