Very soon after you read this, Riverland Wine will be hosting one of the largest and most influential tour groups ever to visit the region.
Riverland activist and entrepreneur Ashley Ratcliff and his team of workers have managed to corral an outstanding list of 12 wine writers, wine show judges, wine educators, cellar door managers, winemakers and a representative of the South Australian Tourism Commission for the “Riverlation” Tour. The tourists, including such well-known industry names as Tony Keyes, Huon Hook, Jane Thomson, Nick Stock, David Brooks, Jane Faulkner, Tim Wildman and others will gather in Adelaide from late afternoon on Tuesday then travel by bus to the Riverland where they will spend two days visiting many of our “hidden gems”, local tourist spots, vineyards, businesses and wineries.
The South Australian Wine Industry Association has co-sponsored this event with generous funding. We are grateful for that investment of confidence in our region and especially grateful to Ashley and his team for making it happen.
