Supporting the NSW wine industry

Mudgee, winery, NSW

The wine industry contributes $1.6 billion to the NSW economy and is recognised by the NSW Government as an important part of the state’s $38 billion tourism sector.

To acknowledge this important contribution, on 27 October 2017 the NSW Government and NSW Wine Industry Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that identified the following key action areas:

  • export market development
  • regional wine tourism and the promotion of NSW wine
  • research, development and innovation.

The MoU actions will be supported by NSW Government through the NSW Department of Industry, NSW Department of Primary Industries and Destination NSW.

The commitments in the MOU are focused on ensuring that the NSW wine industry, and the individual wine businesses that comprise it, are in the  best possible  position to act upon opportunities  for  growth in both domestic  and international markets.
