About the report
The Export Monitor is a one-page high-level historical summary of the total exports of Australian wine. It includes both value and volume of export sales broken down by wine style and container type, plus the percentage shares for each category and percentage change year-on-year for the category over the past 10 financial or calendar years. It does not include variety or regional information.
The Export Monitor shows trends in the total volume and value of wine, and by container type (bottled, unpackaged or other) and by wine style (still, fortified, sparkling, carbonated and other). Still wine is divided into red, white, and rosé categories. Figures are provided for the past 12 complete financial years.
Since 2008-09, there were several years of decline in overall volume of bottled wine exports (both red and white) while bulk wine exports grew. In the last two years however, growth had returned. Over the last ten years, the total volume of exported wine has been between 700 million litres and 850 million litres per annum, with a total value of between A$1.8 billion and A$2.9 billion FOB.
In the latest financial year, 2020-21, the value of Australian wine exports declined by 9.8 per cent to $2.56 billion and volume decreased by 4.8 per cent to 695 million litres compared with the previous year. Over the last 5 years, exports have decreased by 0.9 per cent in volume on average per year, while value has increased by 3.9 per cent.
Compared to the previous year, white wine exports have declined by 8.4 per cent in value while red wine declined by 12 per cent. However, the value of both red and rosé unpackaged wines have both increased in the last 12 months.
The report is updated annually. Previous reports are also available. See also the Export Dashboard.
