Please note that due to the expiry of several foundation data collections in the industry, some of the reports regularly reported on this website are not available until the expired collections are replaced. The table below provides further explanation.
The industry’s national organisations are currently considering an industry-owned grape and wine database to replace the defunct collections. When this occurs, this reporting will recommence.
