Wine Australia is investing in the development of new wine related functionality to the ATDW, as part of the Australian Government’s $50 million Export and Regional Wine Support Package.
These enhancements will help wineries and wine tourism operators more effectively market their businesses and increase their online exposure to attract more international visitors to Australia’s wine regions.
Enhancements made to listings in the Food and Drink category include new cuisine types like wine and platters; new facilities like pop up wine bar; wine varieties, wine styles and practices and wine regions. This is especially relevant for wineries and cellar doors.
These are outlined in a comprehensive guide developed by Wine Australia.
Wine Australia will be running a webinar briefing for Victorian wine producers to talk about these ATDW enhancements. Register for the free webinar, delivered by the Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) and Visit Victoria, at the link below.
