South Australian wine industry sceptical of Government proposal to cut industry investment by $900K

The South Australian wine industry is sceptical of a Government proposal to replace an "unfair" subsidy scheme with an industry fund, which would inevitably cut investment by $900,000.

Under the proposal being presented to wine businesses, the $2.7 million 'cellar door liquor subsidy scheme' would be scrapped and a $1.8 million industry fund created instead.

As it stands, wine businesses that sell at least $1 million of product into the domestic market can receive a rebate of up to $50,000 on wine or brandy sold from the cellar door.
