It won't come as a surprise to those who live here but South Australia is leading the nation in wine production.
In a snapshot of the country's vineyards by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, more than one-third of all vineyards in 2012 were in SA, representing 48 per cent of Australia's wine production.
The report also shows SA produced the majority of red wine grapes in 2012 with 474,000 tonnes or 59 per cent of total production.
Those who enjoy a drop of white can also thank SA for contributing more than 70 per cent of the nation's white wine grapes at 21,000 hectares.
But our thirst for a tipple takes some quenching from our rivers and creeks.
SA accounted for nearly half of the 372,000 million litres of water used nationally to irrigate vineyards or 168,000 million litres of total water use.
This was followed by NSW at 33 per cent (122,000 million litres) and Victoria at 19 per cent (72,000 million litres).
However, increased soil moisture due to higher rainfall resulted in an 11 per cent fall in water usage since the 2010 season.
The principal source used was water taken from rivers, creeks and lakes, accounting for 154,000 million litres.
