Price Rises for Australian Wines  Add/Read Comments

Some of Australia's biggest suppliers have issued price warnings in the wake of a country-wide drought, harsh frosts, bush fires and plagues of locusts during the 2006-7 growing season.

"Bryce Fraser, managing director of independent wine merchants Corney & Barrow Scotland, said producers and suppliers were not simply using the drought as an excuse to put prices up. "People forget, even in mass-produced wineries, this is still a farming activity and is still dependant on weather," he said. "Extreme weather can have a serious effect on the harvest. And he added: "With a price increase [in Australian wines], I think a lot of European producers at the lower end may become more competitive than they have been in the past."
