On-premise recovery in Australia and New Zealand

The amount of imported wine on Australian wine lists fell for the first time in five years according to research just released by Wine Business Solutions. At 34% of all listings, imported wines dipped by 7.5% compared to what they were at this time last year.

This trend is far from consistent across the country, however, and imports make up just under half of all NSW wine listings.  Growth is being lead by the cool climate regions of Adelaide Hills, The Great Southern and Canberra District. Margaret River wines have also enjoyed a considerable boost in listings during the last 12 months.

According to Wine Business Solutions Principal Peter McAtamney: “The Adelaide Hills has perhaps been the most proactive Australian region in terms of reading the changes in the market and responding with unique, innovative food friendly wines."

"New Zealand has also started to make a comeback. They needed to. New Zealand had lost a staggering 38% of its listings between 2014–16. Now, we’re seeing less Marlborough product in the main part of Australian lists and much more from regions like Waipara and Nelson were the need to innovate and evolve has been most acutely felt.”
