AUSTRALIA: Government plans winery rescue

Australia's federal government is to fund a national series of workshops to rescue small wineries facing financial difficulties. The initiative follows widespread concerns about how many of the country's 1600 wineries can survive in an industry dominated by four major producer companies and two major retail chains.

The initiative follows widespread concerns about how many of the country’s 1600 wineries can survive in an industry dominated by four major producer companies and two major retail chains.


Agriculture Minister Warren Truss said A$500,000 (US$299,338) would be spent on 16 workshops to help winemakers improve business and marketing skills in programmes developed by the Winemakers Federation of Australia.


About 70% of Australian wineries have been established since 1990 and shelf space competition has become intense.
