‘Sharp Rise’ in Greek Wine Exports to Australia

Greek wine exports to Australia are rising spectacularly on an annual basis, Wines of Greece – a national professional vineyards and wine organisation- said on Monday.

In an announcement, Wines of Greece said exports to Australia have risen by more than 20 percent  during the last three years, while consumers are gradually appreciating the Greek wines’ quality characteristics more and more.

In a survey conducted in Adelaide recently, 67 percent of consumers said Greek wines were of decidedly high quality.

Greek wine has also gained recognition among specialist audiences, cultivating hopes for an “export spring” in the near future.

Among positive signs, the association cited the high demands among wine and food experts in the Masterclasses on Greek varieties organized in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, the success of the Oinofilia wine event held in Melbourne and high coverage by the Australian media, among others.
