Wines of Australia

The wine industry is the most dynamic industry in the Australian economy, and has undergone major changes over the past 40 years. If in the 50s the average Australian drank only one glass of wine a year, now he drinks about two bottles.

It should be noted that in 1965 the number of winemakers was very small, only six campaigns were engaged in the production of table wine, but by 1999 their number had increased to 109. Now Australia’s share in the world wine market is 2%, but by 2025 the goal is to achieve 6.5% .

Wine is a particularly important industry for Australia. If wool, cotton and beef – traditionally Australian exports – go abroad without any processing, then winemaking promotes the development of related industries (viticulture, packaging, trade), and, therefore, solves the problems of unemployment.

Australian winemaking has come a long way over the past decades, and many experts are confident that by the middle of the 21st century Australian wines will become as familiar and natural for our table as French or Italian.

At the foot of the Victorian Alps in Australia, the climate is very cool thanks to the evening breezes descending into the valley from the snowy peaks. The Royal Valley Alpine Climate is a unique instrument of Australian viticulture. In the process of growing grapes, due to the rather harsh wind, it is necessary to prop up the vine according to a special technology in such a way as to make full use of the energy and heat of sunlight, which significantly improves the taste of grapes. The specific landscape of the area forces winegrowers to look for special approaches to growing grapes, which, ultimately, finds expression in the unique taste of wine, which has no analogues in the world
