Australian Wine Industry Supporting Flood and Cyclone Victims with a Large Raffle

Many Australian wineries and vineyards have suffered losses due to problems in the vineyards and the economy. Despite these losses they have set out to help those who have been devastated by the recent cyclone and floods in Queensland and Victoria as well as the recent cyclone in Australia.

A recent article on the website VisitVineyards.com, “Australian wine raffle for Victorian and Queensland flood and cyclone victims,” author Robyn Lewis wrote that more than 300 wineries and related businesses have donated more than A$240,000 goods including wine and related items for a goal of raising more than A$1 million.

Prize values range from 1st prize valued at A$33,000 to numerous prizes with a value of A$500. Included in the list are cases of wine, trips, magnums and books. One of the most unusual items available is the selection of Seppeltsfield Para Vintage Tawny marking the floods in Queensland with vintages 1893, 1916, 1974 and 2011. A pdf of the prizes is available.

Tickets are A$30 apiece with only 40,000 tickets available. Tickets are available until they are sold out or March 11. Tickets are available online or at wineries.

Hoping they have a very successful raffle!

Cheers! Kathy
