Singapore market a perfect match for SA wines

A rising star in the South Australian wine industry has been catapulted into a key Asian market after striking a new deal through a Government initiative to grow the state’s wine exports.

McLaren Vale-based Bec Hardy Wines has secured its first order with major Singapore retailer Little Farms.

The deal comes weeks after the launch of the Malinauskas Labor Government’s South Australian Wine Ambassadors Club (SAWAC) chapter in Singapore, established to fuel export growth and create new markets.
