The 2022 Tasmanian wine grape season delivered a wide range of weather conditions around the island, calling on the agility, expertise and vigilance of viticulturists and winemakers.
Overall, the 2022 Tasmanian wine grape vintage has delivered excellent quality across wine varieties and styles, with just over 900,000 dozen bottles produced (12,548 tonnes), 13% down on the 2021 vintage and in line with medium-term yields. The quality of wine grapes was again reflected in the record value of $3,237 per tonne, compared with the national average of $630 per tonne.
