ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication presents a summary of statistics on grape and wine production and related activities collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and from other sources.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The 2010 Vineyards collection was a census of all in-scope vineyards and collected information on a wide range of wine grape varieties. This is in contrast to the 2009 vineyards collection, which was undertaken using a survey methodology and collected information on the major wine grape varieties only.
All sources cited refer to ABS publications and/or ABS data available on request.
The continuing collection of varietal data is supported by Australia’s grape-growers and winemakers and the Australian government through the Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation.
Where figures have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Jason Atkinson on Adelaide (08) 8237 7334.
