Commercial members fee calculation information

For the purpose of fee calculation, membership of Wine Geelong included both area under vine/or grapes crushed regardless of individual business structures.

Determine the fee for your winegrowing operation based on your 2018 harvest by choosing the value in section 1a. (Area under vine) combined with the appropriate value in section 1b. (Grapes Crushed).

Grapes crushed is defined as Geelong grown grapes crushed in the 2018 season for sale under your own label(s). The crush for growers who have wine made under contract is the tonnes of Geelong grapes crushed for the wine sold under the grower’s label(s).

Example: For a vineyard of 9 hectares and a crush of 65 tonnes (35 from your own vineyards and 15 purchased from other Geelong growers but not including grapes vintaged under contract) the fee would be Area under vine (1a) = $385.00 plus Grapes Crushed (1b) + $880.00 which bring the total fee payable to $1265.00.
