Hunter Valley wine industry under threat

The Hunter Valley wine industry is under threat because of the growing dominance of global superstores, Hunter vignerons warn. The Hunter is home to 60 winemakers and 80 wineries, and veteran Hunter vigneron Bruce Tyrrell Tyrrell believes that number could be cut to a handful of boutique operations in 10 years and a few supplying to corporations. It is the oldest winemaking region in Australia, but it could collapse under the weight of global companies that are set to dominate the market, reports the Newcastle Herald.
