1 This publication presents selected estimates from the ABS collection: Wine and Spirit Production, 2010-11 (Annual Wine Survey). Not all data from these collections are published here. More information compiled from this collection and other collections will be available in a compendium product due for release in early 2012. Some further data are available for a charge, on application to the ABS.
SCOPE AND COVERAGE OF WINE SURVEY
2 Winemakers who crush 50 tonnes or more of grapes are included in the Wine and Spirit Production collection. Wine production data are collected from these winemakers on a winery (location) basis to allow for state and regional data output. The grapes crushed by these wineries includes grapes owned by others and crushed on a commission or contract basis, often for wine producers who do not have their own crushing facilities.
3 Wine surveys are intended to identify and collect as much relevant activity as possible. The coverage limitations noted in paragraph 2 results in the exclusion of a small amount of activity relating to wineries believed to fall below the coverage limitations when surveyed. The total amount of activity excluded is believed to be between 2% and 5%.
