SA Wine Industry

The South Australian Wine Industry and Green Industries SA

The South Australian wine industry generates $2.12 billion to the state’s economy. South Australia has 18 wine regions producing 610 million litres of wine a year, equivalent to 820 million bottles. Recycled glass is highly sought after by the wine industry in South Australia for bottling and the wine industry is becoming a leading player in South Australia's Circular Economy, with 89% of all glass recovered in South Australia recycled and reused right here. 

Green Industries SA has unique partnerships with The South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA), Wine Australia and individual wine businesses in South Australia, supporting the sector with the uptake of environmental planning, LEAN production, energy efficiency and waste management practices to improve the industry’s efficiency and sustainability, and reduce production costs.
