South Australian wine industry development scheme (SAWIDS)

The 2016 Cellar Door Grants Program and the Regional Wine Industry Association Grants Program are now closed.

The Cellar Door Grants Program is aimed at South Australian wineries operating a cellar door that are looking to diversify and improve their traditional cellar door experience.

The Regional Wine Industry Association Grants program is aimed at South Australian regional grape and wine industry associations looking to develop regional wine tourism and visitor experiences.

Assessment of applications for both grant programs is now complete and funding has been allocated.

About

The $1.8 million South Australian Wine Industry Development Scheme (SAWIDS) aims to encourage growth in the wine industry and further promote South Australia as a producer of premium wine.

In addition to the grant programs, $200,000 has been allocated to support new major wine events and promotions - helping showcase the state’s premium wine to local and international markets and strengthening Adelaide / South Australia’s Great Wine Capital identity.
