In the past month Wine Victoria has remained committed to keeping the ball rolling and keeping our eyes focused on our goals.


Applications for the Wine Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC)Wine Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC) have now closed and a strong representation for the industry was received. When up and running, the committee will be essential to providing advice for the long term performance and sustainability of the Victorian wine industry.

Our newsletter this month features the new state government funding grants for the wine industry. The huge range of grants is spread across innovation, marketing, tourism and planning programs. It is an excellent opportunity to gain supportive funding. More details on the grants and how to apply can be found here.

There is also a chance for you to have your say over industry changes with the Winemakers Federations of Australia's Grower and Winemakers survey. While the industry has been going through significant changes over the last 10 years, WFA are leading discussion on where we'd like to go and encourage you to get involved and help shape future decisions.
