Export Summary

The latest Export Report (MAT September 2022) shows that in the 12 months to 30 September 2022, Australian wine exports declined by 1 per cent in volume to 627 million litres and the average value fell by 10 per cent to $3.20 per litre FOB, leading to an 11 per cent decline in value to $2.01 billion.

Excluding mainland China, exports to the rest of the world decreased by 0.2 per cent in value to $1.99 billion. This is despite volume increasing by 1 per cent to 622 million litres. The steadiness of the value of exports to the rest of the world is a result of declines in exports to the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and Singapore offsetting strong growth to markets including the United States, Canada, Malaysia, and Thailand. 

In the year ended September 2022, the value of packaged exports declined by 12 per cent to $1.51 billion and volume declined by 6 per cent to 231 million litres (25.6 million 9-litre case equivalents). Mainland China was the main driver of the decline in packaged exports. Excluding mainland China, the value of packaged exports increased by 2 per cent in value and declined by 1 per cent in volume. Most packaged exports were shipped in glass bottles (97 per cent of volume), with the remainder made up of exports in soft pack (2.8 per cent) and other alternative packaging such as cans, PET, and flagons (0.5 per cent). 

Exports of unpackaged wine shipments declined by 8 per cent in value to $494 million and increased by 2 per cent in volume to 397 million litres (44.1 million 9-litre case equivalents). The average value of unpackaged shipments declined by 9 per cent to $1.25 per litre FOB.

The top five markets by value were:

  • USA, up 5 per cent to $412 million,
