The Barossa Cellar committee is encouraging BGWA members to finalise their donations to this historic community initiative by 30 November 2017. You can donate online here or complete and return the form here.
The Barossa Cellar is an extraordinary community project that is about to get underway in the Barossa. This is believed to be the biggest, single community project ever undertaken in the Barossa. The concept is unique in Australia and will secure our position as the nation’s premier wine region. Once The Barossa Cellar is built, a large number of international wine consumers, trade and media will visit this spectacular building, which in a nutshell will promote Barossa wines to the world.
It will also serve as the new home of the BGWA, providing your organisation with a fantastic new location from which to host viticultural and wine-related activities. As a member of the BGWA you will be welcome to visit The Barossa Cellar during business hours.
The Barossa Cellar committee is now within reach of their fundraising target, and expect The Barossa Cellar to be operational in 2018. More than 75 Barossa wineries have come on board with donations or pledges, and the committee is now working hard to secure additional cash donations to enable them to commit to a start date. In particular, they are reaching out to the Barossa’s grape growing community to get behind this project and make it a reality.
The committee is therefore asking that you consider making a donation by 30 November 2017 to ensure your name is etched in Barossa history. The Barossa Cellar will benefit the region for generations to come and this is an exciting opportunity for you and your family to support the project and secure a Stone ($500) or Vine ($1000) which will be acknowledged on a display in The Barossa Cellar and on our website. In addition, Vine donors will be allocated an individual Shiraz vine in The Barossa Cellar’s vineyard which will consist of just 1,800 vines. They will also have first option to purchase the limited release wine produced from this vineyard, which will represent some of the oldest Shiraz genetics in the world.
