Riverland wineries collaborate

Riverland Wine was recently disappointed to have its application for cluster funding rejected.

 

One of the great challenges for those who live in the region and for visitors to the region is to be able to readily purchase our own world class products. The organisation had applied to the State Government for a share of its funding in line with the Premier’s seventh strategic priority: Premium Food and Wine from our Clean Environment. The proposal was for a comprehensive study to determine the viability of establishing a number of retail outlets across the region to sell Riverland wine, food and tourism products exclusively. If successful it would have led to collaboration between the regions wine producers, food producers and tourism promoters.

Despite the disappointment, Riverland Wine has not given up on the concept. In the meantime several of our most innovative and progressive wine producers have formed their own collaborative cellar door venture. 919, Whistling Kite and Bassham Wines will all be sharing the cellar door at 919 Wines, Hodges Road Glossop where the focus will be on alternative varieties and organics. The three collaborators will be providing classic wines and cheese platters all day on Saturday, September 6 (10am to 5pm) for just $20 per person which includes a glass of wine.
