Australian wine producer Dromana Estate has seen first-half sales fall over 19% mainly because it stopped marketing Baptista Shiraz overseas.

Dromana said today (16 March) that sales dropped to A$1.3m (US$956,000) in the six months to 31 December, although net losses halved to A$227,000.

The company said it remains the domestic distributor of the Baptista Shiraz brand, but export sales would be handled directly by Baptista Wines Pty.

Dromana said that its margin on wine sales fell 9% due to "lower-than-forecast margins across all distribution channels". Margins were also hit by the sale of bulk wine at a loss, the company added.
