The Wine Tourism and Cellar Door Grant program has been introduced to support producers who add value by encouraging visitors to wine regions. Wine producers will be able to access an annual grant reflective of their eligible physical cellar door sales.
The grant is part of a coordinated suite of measures developed with the Australian wine industry after extensive consultations on reforms to the Wine Equalisation Tax (WET) arrangements. It complements the $50 million Export and Regional Wine Support Package being implemented by Wine Australia from 2016 through to 2020.
The suite of measures are the responsibility of the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. Wine Australia is administering the Wine Tourism and Cellar Door grants, as part of that suite, on behalf of the Commonwealth in accordance with paragraph 2.9.d of the Commonwealth Grants Rules and Guidelines (CGRGs).
Applications close: Wednesday 30th of September.
