Article: Australian wine grape production projections to 2013-14
This report provides estimates of wine grape production for the 2010–11 vintage and production projections for 2011–12, 2012–13 and 2013–14. Estimates have been made for total wine grape production in each of Australia’s wine grape producing zones.
In 2011 the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) collected vineyard data as part of its Agricultural Census, but reduced its coverage to total wine grape production, bearing and non- bearing areas, and area removed from production. Before 2011, the ABS vineyards collection involved either a census of all vineyards within the scope of the population, or a survey that covered a more limited number of wine grape varieties. Because of the reduced coverage of the 2011 data, it has been necessary to reorganise data from previous years to allow comparisons between this year’s estimates and data collected in previous years for all ABS-specified zones. As a result, no production estimates across varieties are provided.
