It is not lost on us how lucky we are to have our property intact given the conditions 20thDec, high winds and searing heat. What a horror day! The fire could have started anywhere and did. With summer only just started the danger is far from over! We need every assistance to get through.
So many of the Adelaide Hills community of which we are part, have been hit by the horrendous fires. WE NEED HELP to protect ourselves now and into the future. Property, businesses and industry. More than ever, Adelaide Hills Wine Region vineyards and cellar doors and businesses need assistance! Your patronage makes a difference.
1/3 of Adelaide Hills Wine Region has been devistated to the north of us. We are part of this community even though we are on the southern tip. (Geographically we are closer to Mclaren Vale - in the center of the Fleurieu Peninsula but we are at 1300ft and produce Adelaide Hills Wines. ) We also sell our grapes to other Adelaide Hills wine makers. If fire broke out here, in the center of the Fleurieu Peninsula the Range Hope Forest CFS would be first on the scene.
We have little resourses ourselves, but we do have 2 things to physically offer.
1) Our venue for anyone who has an epiphony for a fundraiser and needs a venue Magpie Springs is available if proceeds to go to the CFS (Please contact us! Lets do it!)
2) Till the end of this fire season from our cellar door - WINE
for every 12pack case sales - $50 will be donated to CFS
6pack case sales - $25 will be donated to CFS
(this offer does not include deals purchased online through any other site - though cash donations are greatfully accepted on visiting)
