Wine Export Grants
From 2 January 2018, Wine Australia is inviting small and medium Australian wine businesses to apply for the Wine Export Grants program, as part of the Australian Government’s $50 million Export and Regional Wine Support Package (the $50m Package).
Wine Export Grants are offered for specific wine export promotion activities aimed at supporting small and medium wine businesses to secure new distribution channels in China, Hong Kong, Macau and/or the USA.
Eligible wine businesses can claim a reimbursement grant of up to AU$25,000 for 50 per cent of total eligible expenses incurred on or after 1 January 2018. There is $1 million allocated to the grant program and applications will close on 1 May 2020, or on the expiration of funds, whichever comes first.
If you are a wine producer in Australia, you may apply for a Wine Export Grant if you:
• had an aggregated turnover of less than AU$20 million, including an export turnover of less than AU$5 million, during the financial year immediately preceding your application, and
• promote your Australian wine product for export to China, Hong Kong, Macau and/or the USA; this includes the export promotion activities being applied for through this grant.
Once a wine producer has received advice that their application was successful, no further applications for this grant will be accepted from that producer or any associated producers.
