Australian Grape & Wine, working with its industry Packaging Committee, have developed this page in order to consolidate useful resources and updates relevant to wine sector packaging in a clear and concise manner.
At its centre, Australian Grape and Wine’s Wine Packaging Guidelines provide an important industry best practice resource for the use of wine packaging. This resource is regularly reviewed and amended with guidance from the Packaging Committee as well as technical advice from the Australian Wine Research Institute and supplier input from Wine Industry Suppliers Association.
