The Barossa Grape & Wine Association (BGWA) was established in 2008 as the peak wine industry body in Barossa. On behalf of over 550 wine grape growers and 170 wineries, BGWA is the beacon for collaborative investment and collective action, initiating and delivering projects for the benefit of the Barossa wine industry.
BGWA is uniquely positioned to nurture and promote brand Barossa to a global audience, to facilitate within Barossa the uptake of vineyard, winery and business best practice and to comment and lobby on government and industry policy issues.
BGWA's environmental initiatives have had a great impact on the sustainability of the Barossa region. In 2019 the Resilient Landscape Project won the Australian Government Landcare Farming Award.
In an acknowledgement of the power of collaborative marketing and communication, BGWA was awarded Wine Communicator of the Year in 2019 by Wine Communicators of Australia.
