The information on stocks of Australian produced wine is obtained from winemaking enterprises with sales of 250,000 litres or more in the previous financial year.

Other concepts (summary)
For the purposes of this collection, 'Winemakers' are those businesses which ferment wine, ie, take grape juice and turn it into wine. Businesses which blend wine only are considered to be outside the scope of this collection. This collection also includes 'sales balance' items such as exports and wine purchases so that a unit reconciliation can be made. Data from the provider's Wine and Spirit Production form is also used as part of the reconciliation.
