Fo­rum on wine plan

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

The re­gion’s wine com­mu­nity is in­vited to a pub­lic fo­rum on Wed­nes­day to dis­cuss the pro­posed es­tab­lish­ment of a Wilyabrup wine sub-re­gion.

The ap­pli­ca­tion was lodged by lo­cal winer­ies Cullen Wines, Wood­land Es­tate, Fraser Gal­lop Es­tate, Mood Wood and Len­ton Brae.

Mar­garet River Wine As­so­ci­a­tion’s Amanda White­land, whose po­si­tion was re­cently reti­tled to chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, said the in­dus­try group did not have a view on the pro­posal and was not in­volved in the ap­pli­ca­tion.

“MRWA does not have a final po­si­tion yet as we need to can­vass our mem­bers for their views af­ter they have had an op­por­tu­nity to re­view the ap­pli­ca­tion,” she said.

Wine Aus­tralia will lead a sem­i­nar on the ge­o­graph­i­cal in­di­ca­tion bid on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, start­ing at 9am, at Stays Mar­garet River.

At­ten­dees were asked to RSVP. Con­tact 9757 9330 for more in­for­ma­tion.
