Japan free trade deal brings benefits to Hunter wine producers

Grapegrowers in the New South Wales Upper Hunter appear to be reaping the benefits of Australia's free trade agreement with Japan, a year after the deal was finalised. Bottled wine sales are up by 11 per cent, whiles sales of bulk wine have almost tripled to more than $5 million to Japan. NSW Nationals Senator John Williams said it was welcome news in the Hunter, amid an ongoing mining downturn.
