Wine festival brightens up winter season

The Shoalhaven Coast Winter Wine Festival will take place later this year.

THE Shoalhaven Coast Winter Wine Festival will benefit from $10,000 of state government funding.

The funds are being provided as part of the Regional Flagship Events Program.

“The Shoalhaven Coast Winter Wine Festival showcases the essence and flavour of the coast through our region’s outstanding wine trail and is an opportunity for festivalgoers to meet vignerons and winemakers at their cellar doors,” Kiama MP Gareth Ward said.

“I’m delighted the festival has been successful in its application for Regional Flagship Events Program funding for the third consecutive year.

“Last year, the festival attracted 8000 attendees, with about 4000 visiting from outside the region.

“The state government is proud to support this event through our tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, and I encourage everyone to visit the Shoalhaven Coast and celebrate this wonderful festival in June,” Mr Ward said.

Shayne Bricker, president of the Shoalhaven Coast Wine Industry Association and owner of Two Figs Winery, said the festival was important in attracting significant numbers of visitors to experience regional wine and locally grown produce, but to also enjoy other attractions helping to make an important contribution to the economy.

“The Shoalhaven Coast comes alive during the June long weekend, attracting thousands of visitors to the coast which goes to supporting local jobs and local businesses,” Mr Bricker said.

The Winter Wine Festival will be from June 6-8.
