Grape & Wine Research & Development Corporation

The Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation (GWRDC) invests in and directs research, development and extension (RD&E) along the whole value chain ‘from vine to glass’ to support a competitive Australian wine sector.

Established in 1991, we are an Australian Government statutory authority governed by a Board of Directors. Our national operations are directed from our Adelaide office.

GWRDC is funded by grapegrowers and winemakers, who pay levies on the annual winegrape crush, and the Australian Government, which provides matching funds.
