The wine industry is an ever-changing landscape. Like all primary producers, you’re equally beholden to both market forces and nature. Yet, within this fluid environment, solid legal ground can be found; a reliable foundation that, when considered in light of relevant experience, can facilitate the transformation of your hard work and passion into commercial success.
Our experienced team of wine lawyers can provide that foundation. We have accumulated considerable expertise in dealing with wine industry legal matters and have advised many of the leading names in Australian wine – including some of the most prominent wineries in South Australia – across all areas of business.
We assist all types of businesses operating in the wine industry, including winemakers, grape growers, wine merchants and suppliers to the industry in relation to commercial transactions, liquor licensing, branding and label compliance, intellectual property, dispute resolution, taxation, business structuring, securities and workplace issues.
Our commitment to the sector is also evidenced by our active involvement in industry events and organisations. We are proud sponsors and members of Wine Industry Suppliers Australia (WISA), Winestate’s Australian & New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards and the Adelaide Review’s Hot 100 SA Wines.
