Wine Australia



The Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA), trading as Wine Australia, is the single Australian Government statutory service body for the Australian grape and wine community.
We support a prosperous Australian grape and wine community by investing in research and development (R&D), building the international and domestic markets, disseminating knowledge, encouraging adoption and protecting the reputation of Australian wine.
Our governance and operations seek the best possible return on our investments.

What we do
We are governed by the Australian Grape and Wine Authority Act 2013. Our role under the Act is to:

  • coordinate or fund grape and wine research and development, and facilitate the dissemination, adoption and commercialisation of the results
  • control the export of wine from Australia, and
  • promote the sale and consumption of wine, both in Australia and overseas.
