Selected estimates are now available from the 2007 - 08 annual wine collection which covers Australian winemakers who crushed 50 tonnes or more of grapes during the year. The first release of grape crush and beverage wine production data for 2007-08 was released on 30 October 2008 in Australian Grape Crush & Wine Production, 2007-08 (ABS cat. no. 1329.0.55.003). A more detailed analysis of the larger wine industry, including inventories will be contained in Australian Wine and Grape Industry (ABS cat. no. 1329.0) which will be released in late November 2008.
For the 2008 vintage there were 382 locations around Australia which crushed 50 tonnes or more of grapes owned by 340 winemaking businesses.
