TABLE 3: APPARENT CONSUMPTION OF WINE
Total volume of wine
In volume terms, apparent consumption of wine has increased rapidly since the 1960s. In 2008-09 there were 516 million litres of wine available for consumption, almost ten times the amount in 1960-61 (53 million litres). While population growth will have played a part in this increase (with the number of persons aged 15 years and over increasing by around 10 million between 1960-61 and 2008-09), apparent per capita consumption has also increased strongly, particularly between the mid 1960s and mid 1980s (Graph 9). In 1985-86 apparent per capita consumption reached a peak of 28 litres per person aged 15 years and over, after which apparent per capita consumption declined. Since 1995-96 apparent per capita consumption of wine has resumed an upward trend, reaching 29 litres per person in 2006-07 and remaining at this level in the following years.
