Stanthorpe in the Spotlight
The Today Show recently made Stanthorpe their final stop after a week of visiting drought affected communities. Not only was it a great opportunity to put a spotlight on Stanthorpe and our amazing community spirit, it was also a chance for local business to showcase their products, and we were excited to be part of this fun morning.
The main purpose of the event was to highlight the initiative of the Great Northern's Let It Pour fundraiser that was held on the 25th-27th October where funds raised went to The Rotary Clubs of Australia Drought Appeal.
But there was also an opportunity for local Granite Belt wineries to promote the Wine 4 Water fundraiser, to raise much needed funds for Granite Belt Drought Assist. "By purchasing a 6 pack of wines from Wine 4 Water, you are not only supporting some local businesses, but All Profits from each pack goes to those in need. Some of the wineries contributing to this generous cause are Golden Grove Estate, Ridgemill Estate, La Petit Mort, Twisted Gum, Ballandean Estate, Pyramids Road Wines, Hidden Creek Wines, View Wines, Jester Hill Wines, Girraween Estate and Heritage Estate.
Many wines part of this initiative have a retail value of $30 each. When you consider a 6 pack purchase of a mixed pack is only $150, this is a great buy. In a win-win scenario, you win with 6 great wines and the Granite Belt community wins with All Profits going to those in need."
