A show of support for our friends Down Under
The devastation being caused by the fires in Australia is absolutely heart-breaking. It has been catastrophic on so many levels, with people loosing their homes and livelihoods. However the global support being received to help tackle these blazes and to rebuild the communities that have been destroyed by fire has been extraordinary.
In the wine industry, our thoughts turn to the winemakers who are working day and night to protect their properties and livelihoods. It hasn't stopped them trading and what they need now more than ever is our support and people to continue doing business with their country, which will be a key factor in getting them through these tough times.
As today is Australia Day and bushfire season is far from over, we thought there has never been a better time to support our Australian friends, so we will donate 10% of all sales on every bottle of Australian wine we sell at full price, in store and online for the next month to NSW RURAL FIRE SERVICE.
The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) has been active for over 100 years and is the lead combat agency for bush fires in NSW. It is the world's largest volunteer fire service with over 74,000 members who provide fire and emergency services to more than 95% of NSW.
