Wine Law

Growing, making, packaging, exporting or importing? Don’t let legislation sour your experience.

New England is internationally recognised as one of the newest cool-climate wine regions, producing a range of significant wines from the enormous diversity in its soils, climate and aspect.

While the industry is typified by romance, sophistication and lifestyle, it is no surprise that legal requirements for Australian winemakers, vineyards and the viticulture industry are becoming increasingly complex.

The business of wine involves the application and blending of State, Federal and international legislation. Whether manufacturing or labelling wine, meeting Australia’s obligations under international trade export agreements, identifying levies and taxes that may apply to your products, or advising on legal requirements to help you plan strategies for securing local and export markets, Legal Minds deliver a full professional service that adds value to your business.

If you are considering starting your own vineyard, are a prominent vigneron, a seasoned exporter, or simply a lover of fine wine with an interest in understanding more about product liability, export matters or formalising family arrangements for succession planning – including retirement and transfer of your wine making businesses to younger generations –
Legal Minds can help.
