Mildura Wines Funding.

In 2005, $50,000 was granted to the Sunraysia Mallee Economic Development Board under the Victorian Government’s Regional Innovation Cluster Program (RICP).

This grant has enabled the Mildura Wines to unite wineries and related businesses to work more collaboratively in identifying solutions to common concerns.

Mildura Wines will facilitate a more planned and coordinated approach to infrastructure requirements (roads, transport and logistics) and will lead to wineries having access to a larger pool of appropriately qualified staff (a critical issue in the region).

Mildura Wines has broad industry participation which includes 24 financial members, wine grape producers, educational institutions, research and development organisations, various business agencies and wine industry support businesses.


The support businesses within Mildura Wines include vine nurseries, wine tank manufacturers, irrigation suppliers, tartaric acid suppliers, transport and logistics providers and bottling plants.

Many of these local businesses also service the needs of other large wine growing regions such as the Barossa, Clare and Griffith areas which are the source of 65% of Australia’s wine grape crush.

Mildura Wines also targets education and research organisations including CSIRO, Latrobe University, DPI and the Sunraysia Institute of TAFE.
