AUS: Domestic wine sales down, exports up – figures
Australia's wine sales at home have slipped, while exports continue to rise, according to recent figures. The country's Bureau of Statistics said today (3 November) that domestic sales for the country's winemakers slipped last month by 2.7% against August to a seasonally-adjusted 35.4m litres.
Against the same month a year earlier, however, sales at home were up by 0.5% in September.
In both volume and value terms, exports were up on the previous month, by 10% to 67.3m litres and by 16% to A$277.8m respectively in adjusted terms, the bureau said.
The average value of exported wine in September was up to A$4.13 per litre from A$3.92 in August, but down on a year earlier, when it stood at A$4.33.
