Local wine producers may benefit from a new U.S market entry program.
In 2020 South Australian producers exported just under $50 million of labelled, bottled wine to the US market with The US identified as a priority market for the South Australian wine sector.
The Riverland remains SA’s wine industry engine room, crushing over 450,000 tonnes each year.
Minister for Trade and Investment Stephen Patterson is encouraging South Australian wineries to register their interest for the US Market Entry Program as the industry faces challenging times following bushfires, COVID-19 and market access difficulties.
Local wineries wishing to find out more can do so via the Wine Australia website.
