Poonawatta have partnered with the Rotary Australia Drought Relief Response to raise funds for drought affected communities through the sale of our 2014 Poonawatta ‘The Cuttings’ Shiraz.
2019 Halliday Wine Companion. “Bold and beautiful. Plums, violets, mint and darker blackberried characters on all fronts. It’s a floral wine with impact; it’s pure Eden Valley Shiraz. Sawdusty oak plays a minor role, as indeed does a melt of tannin. It offers a world of freshness and life. Rating 95. To 2035”
Our goal is to raise over $33,000 with all profits donated to support the Rotary Drought Relief Response – with your support.
About the Rotary Drought Relief Program.
Rotary’s program uses a ‘whole of community’ approach, completely run by volunteers and does not incur any overhead or administrative expenses. This holistic aid program includes distributing vouchers to farming families for essential supplies from local small businesses to stimulate local economic growth and organising community ‘Family Days’ to promote mental health and social wellbeing. The ‘whole of community’ approach recognises that in times of drought, entire communities –- from farmers, graziers, small local businesses to families and children –- are all in it together.
A key focus of the program is the mental health issues resulting from the longevity of the drought, with ‘wellbeing’ rather than ‘welfare’ being foundation to the ‘whole of community’ approach.
