WINE FIG­URE

Australian Geographic - - Your Say -

I love re­ceiv­ing your mag­a­zine ev­ery sec­ond month and I thor­oughly en­joy the ar­ti­cles. Fan­tas­tic work! I am moved to write about the wine ar­ti­cle in AG 144, in par­tic­u­lar page 71.The fig­ure in the red cir­cle says total vine­yard area in Aus­tralia is about 1350ha.The Wine Aus­tralia web­site ( wineaus­tralia.com) es­ti­mates the area is about 135,000ha. I sus­pect some­one has dropped two ze­ros from the fig­ure! Any­way, keep up the fan­tas­tic work, I have dis­cov­ered many ar­eas of Aus­tralia af­ter read­ing the mag­a­zine.

JOHN FRENCH, EP­PING, NSW

Ed: Thanks for point­ing this out to us, John.Yes, we cer­tainly got this fig­ure wrong and are very happy to cor­rect it: as you said, the total vine­yard area in Aus­tralia is 135,000ha, not 1350ha. Some­how a cou­ple of ze­ros dropped off from that fig­ure.
