Adelaide winegrape varieties book wins international accolade

A book by the School of Economics Professor, Kym Anderson, has received (along with two others) the prestigious International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) Award for the best viticulture books in 2013.

Published by the University of Adelaide Press, Professor Anderson’s book, Which Winegrape Varieties are Grown Where?, is an in-depth analysis of the world’s wine varieties and winegrape growing regions that account for 99% of global wine production.

Following research funded by the Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA), the book is the first database of the world’s winegrape varieties and regions, and a valuable resource for the wine industry. It is freely accessible as an e-book at and the underlying database, available at, is continually being revised and expanded.
