Call for Independent Experts

Australian Grape & Wine is looking for suitably qualified individuals to join our database of Independent Experts for the Code of Conduct for Australian Winegrape Purchases. Independent Experts may be engaged to deliver a determination in the case that a dispute occurs.

Under the new Code there are two types of disputes that may require expert advice:

  • A dispute over whether grapes have been correctly assessed in accordance with the requirements set out in the Agreement; or
  • A dispute as to whether the price for the grapes has been properly determined.

Applicants must ideally have either a minimum of 5 years of experience in vineyard and winegrape assessment and contract arrangements, or have experience in pricing mechanisms used in grape supply agreements, grape pricing and factors influencing the winegrape market.

To apply to become an independent expert use the following form:
