Regional snapshots

About the report

Regional Snapshots are one-page profiles of individual Australian wine regions and provide at-a-glance summary statistics on: climatic characteristics, viticulture data, winegrape production, and winegrape price and export sales data for wine, compared against the same statistics for the whole of Australia.

Report summary

The reports provide:

  • an overview of climate data for the region
  • current bearing and non-bearing areas
  • winegrape production and yields for red and white grapes from the most recent vintage
  • share of grape production and average winegrape prices paid in the most recent vintage for the top five varieties in the region by volume
  • total exports and bottled exports by value and volume for the last 12 months, and growth compared with the previous 12 months (for wine with single region claims and for blends where the region is the first named on the label and therefore the major component)
  • top five export destinations for bottled exports and volume share of exported wine by price point for six price categories from under A$2.50 per litre to A$20.00 per litre and above FOB.

There are graphs showing total vineyard area from the past 15 years and average winegrape price for the region in each of the past 9 years, giving a historical perspective on the data. Each figure for the region (apart from the climate data) is compared against the equivalent statistic for the whole of Australia, enabling the regional data to be benchmarked against the national data.

Individual reports have been prepared for all recognised GI regions in Australia, across all states - including:

South Australia Victoria Western Australia New South Wales/ACT
Queensland
Tasmania

Murray-Darling - Swan Hill

The reports are updated annually.  

Also see the Variety Snapshots – a similar format report where at-a-glance statistics are provided for each winegrape variety produced in Australia.
