There is no current wine production industry in the Northern Territory

The Northern Territory is too hot (dry in the south, tropical in the north) for serious viticulture. There are currently no substantial commercial vineyards.

However, there has been a recent history of commercial wine-making. Dennis and Helen Hornsby established Chateau Hornsby just outside of Alice Springs in 1977.

The heat meant that the grapes could picked at midnight on New Years to produce the "first wine in the world' each vintage. They ran their popular cellar door and restaurant until 2002, and then sold their remaining stock for a on the internet.

The only NT wine that is still sold commercially (mainly at some Alice Springs supermarket liquour sections) is produced by a mango fruit winery, Red Centre Farm, that has half a hectare set aside for wine grapes.

It is located at Ti Tree, about 180 km north of Alice Springs. The two wines are a Cabernet-Merlot blend and a Tawny Port. The water comes from artesian bores.
