Winemaking Tas money troubles

After 18 years playing a pivotal role in the state's flourishing wine and cider sector, Winemaking Tasmania's hit financial strife.

The Coal Valley operation, which crafts and bottles product for dozens of the state's vineyards and brands, has fallen into voluntary administration.

Pitcher Partners has been appointed as the administrator to explore Winemaking Tasmania's future viability and whether it should be sold.

Around a quarter of Tasmania's wine brands are made at the specialist contract-crush winery, which also services the orchard industry for cider production.

The company's creditors will meet in Hobart on June 3rd.
