Australia is one of the biggest exporters of wine in the world, with approximately 747 million litres of wine exported internationally each year. This means that more Australian wine is consumed overseas rather than in Australia. The Australian wine industry is therefore vital to Australia’s economy, particularly for reasons such as production, employment, export and tourism.
This FACT indicates the dollar value made from the international export of wines by each Australian state and territory from the years 2010 to 2011. The values here are represented in thousands (000’s). The state with the highest amount of value made from the international export of wines is South Australia, at A$1.2 Billion a year. The Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory ranked the lowest at a combined value of A$50,000.
In this instance, the Australian Bureau of Statistics has combined the data for both territories and it was not possible to gain individual statistics, thus both have been recorded as zero.
