About this Event

Second run!

It has been heartbreaking to watch, to hear and to read the stories of destruction as a result of the Cudlee Creek fires just before Christmas and the rest of Australia on fire for the last couple of months. We are in awe of all the fire fighters and emergency services who have risked their lives and worked tirelessly during this tragedy.

Many wine grape growers have been affected by the fire, as well as apple and pear growers. Tilbrook Wines has been destroyed, Vinteloper Wines lost nearly everything, while Golding Wines, Barristers Block, Beal & Co, Simon Tolley Wines, New Era Vineyards and Emmeline Wines have also had significant damage. Other wineries that were affected include Anderson Hill, Artwine, Bird in Hand, Geoff Weaver, Henschke Wines, Nova Vita Wines, Petaluma, Tomich Wines and Turon Wines.

I spent two years in Australia before I settled in NZ. In 2017, I was invited to visit Australia by Wine Australia, an experience that I will cherish forever. I would like to do my little bit to support the Australian Country Fire Service, to keep battling the destructive blaze. Please join me!

We will be tasting a range of Australian wine.
