AUS: Domestic Aussie wine sales fall in March
Domestic sales of Australian wine fell 8% in March, according to government figures.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics said today (8 May) that sales of white wine fell 6.9% on the previous month. Red wine sales plunged 12%, according to seasonally adjusted figures.
Total domestic sales were down 8% to 34.8m litres compared to February and were off 4.7% on the same period last year.
