The objective of the Wine Tourism and Cellar Door Grant is to support wine or cider producers who add value by encouraging visitors to wine regions, and thereby encourage wine tourism.
What do applicants get?
Wine producers who have met the eligibility criteria in the preceding financial year may apply for a grant payment of 29 per cent of the notional wholesale selling price of their eligible rebatable domestic cellar door sales (up to $100,000 (GST exclusive)). Total funding under the grant program is capped at $10 million each financial year.
If the total value of all eligible applications exceeds the $10 million program cap in, the value of individual grants will be reduced proportionally and be applied at a consistent rate for all approved applications.
