Wine tourism within the grape-growing areas of Australia is an integral part of local and regional tourism initiatives; however, it is an area that has been under-researched resulting in few available resources to wine tourism providers. This research set out to address this deficiency by establishing whether there is a link between the wine tourism experience and wine purchasing behaviour.  The research was also designed to develop a market segmentation process that will inform wineries about the buying behaviour of particular market segments so that they can fashion their marketing communications strategies in a focused manner.
