Synergy in Grape and Wine Research

The Wine Innovation Cluster (WIC) sees four leading grape and wine research agencies coming together with a single goal in mind: in collaboration, to achieve results that would not be possible working as standalone agencies.

With extensive research facilities on the Waite Campus in Adelaide South Australia, world-leading personnel and networks right around the globe, the WIC will deliver results effectively and efficiently. Between them, the co-located partners possess the major share of Australian research, development, extension and education capabilities over the whole of the grape and wine value chain.

Wine Innovation Cluster Partners

The WIC brings together four leading research agencies that address the needs of the grape and wine sector:

  • The Australian Wine Research Institute
  • CSIRO Plant Industry
  • South Australian Research & Development Institute
  • The University of Adelaide

The Wine Innovation Cluster is also engaged with a number of other networks and organisations, including the National Wine Research Network and the National Wine & Grape Industry Centre in Wagga Wagga, NSW.
