Senate inquiry to examine wine industry impact on Hunter Valley

A Senate inquiry is examining the profitability of wineries in areas such as the Hunter, along with the impact of taxes and regulations. The inquiry will also assess possible failures in the wine industry supply chain and the power and influence of retailers. Another focus is how the industry benefits regions such as the Hunter, through tourism and employment. Hunter vigneron Bruce Tyrrell says the industry has been proactive, but imposts like the wine equalisation tax are still hurting growers.
