Last chance to secure your 2009 Wine Industry Directory

If you have not already secured a copy of your 2009 Australian and New Zealand Wine Industry Directory, then act quickly while stocks last.

Widely considered an essential tool by those working in the wine industry, stocks are limited and selling fast.

The 528-page 2009 Wine Industry Directory includes a comprehensive list of industry personnel, wine producers, suppliers, distributors, retailers, writers and wine publications, organisations, events and wine shows.

It contains a buyers’ guide of wine industry suppliers by goods and services provided and a comprehensive overview of the industry with statistics and descriptions of the industry’s main regulating bodies.

Directory Editor Anita Donaldson says the number of Australian wine producers listed in the Wine Industry Directory now stands at 2320, up from 2299 listed in the 2008 edition.

“In the past 10 years, the Directory has seen an average net gain of about 121 wine producers per year,” she said.

South Australia recorded the highest number of new producers, adding 13 to its 2008 tally of 607 to reach 620 in 2009, while Victoria grew 1.6%, adding 11 new producers to its 2008 tally of 687 to reach 698.

Other changes included a reduction in the number of producers that crush between 20 and 49 tonnes, down 3% from 528 in the 2008 Directory to 512 in the 2009 edition.

“This would either seem to indicate a reduction in small producers due to failure of the business, or acquisition of the business by another producer shifting the business into a higher tonnage category,” Donaldson said.

The Directory is available from Adelaide-based company Winetitles for A$123.20 in Australia, A$125.00 in New Zealand and A$147.50 overseas.

(All prices include postage and an accompanying CD-ROM readable PDF version).
