The Australian wine group, BRL Hardy, made a significant concession in its plans to reduce payments to growers supplying the company with red wine grapes, exempting a large group of growers from the new system.

To general consternation among grape farmers, the company announced in June that it would cut payments to growers who supplied a larger quantity of grapes than they had at first estimated. BRL Hardy has now reversed its decision but only for those farmers who belong to the CCW group.

The Victorian and Murray Valley Winegrape Growers Council said that this unfairly discriminates against the other 200 growers affected by the measure and has complained to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
