Section Three: Grape price data


All data presented have been sourced from the levy data of the New Zealand Grape Growers Council. The data include initial and top-up
payments as at 14 September 2009. This data includes 99% of all grapes produced by growers according to the Vintage Survey 2009. It
is known that some growers have not received full and final payment for their grapes, but it is not possible to quantify this. New Zealand
Winegrowers will provide an update of grape prices in February 2010, to report on any further payments relating to grapes from vintage 2009.
