Overseas Wine Markets
There are over 2,000 wine exporters in operation in Australia. These businesspeople export tens of thousands of different wines to over 120 worldwide. The top five export markets for Australian wines (by value) are:
1. China (33%)
2. The US (18%)
3. The UK (14%)
By volume, the UK beats China to first place – the Brits love their wine but don’t produce many themselves, making the country reliant on imports.
Wine Export Approval (WEA)
There are a number of procedures in place to ensure that products exported from Australia are of the utmost quality. These help protect the reputation of Australian wines overseas and ensures the long-term success of wine exports.
Wine Australia(the government body regulating wine exports) states that all wine shipments over 100 litres need export approval. This means products have to be registered with Wine Australia before they’re exported. Wine Export Approval (WEA) can be obtained online and is made up of three documents: Licence to Export, Product Registration and Export Permit.
Free Trade Agreements
As well as WEA, some countries to which you may wish to export wine will require further documentation. This will often depend on the trade deal between Australia and that country. Once you have obtained WEA for your wine,hand over your wine shipping task to TSL Australia and we’ll do the rest. As a professional shipping agent, we can obtain your Certificate of Origin and Health Certificate for you. We’ll make sure all customs clearance documents are in place so that your wine shipment arrives safely at its destination with zero delays.
