Riverland Wine is continuing to develop ideas to apply for a wine tourism grant as part of the Australian Government’s $50m Export and Regional Wine Support Package. The eligibility criteria require collaborative activities that include different types of organisations who are prepared to commit funds to the project.
We are currently involved in discussions with the University of Adelaide, who look like a potential partner, and the State Government has offered up to $125,000 as a cash co-contribution as part of the South Australian Wine Industry Development Scheme. We will keep you up to date as our concept takes shape and would love to hear from other businesses or organisations that would like to work with us.
Grant applications will be assessed on a competitive basis so it’s important that ours is hits the mark. This is a great opportunity for the Riverland’s wine, food and tourism industry and the more contributors we have, the better our chances.
Applications close on March 2, 2018. If you would like more information about how you can be involved, contact Jo or Chris on 8584 6399.
