Hi all, take a look at this fundraiser by the Victorian wine industry to help with the bushfire appeal. It’s being put together by www.winestar.com.au and the prizes are amazing, there are 33 in all, but of course the key thing is you’re supporting a Victorian industry as well as the appeal.

Winestar’s Bert Werden says, “The events of the past week have touched all Australians and hit home hard for the wine industry with the tragic death of Rob Davey (of Rob Davey Wine Merchants) his wife and two young daughters… I appreciate many of you have already given to the cause, but if you can find it in your heart to give a little more, and maybe even win some great wines, please do. “

I haven’t listed all the prizes, you can see on Winestar’s website. First prize is wines to the value of $25,000 while the smallest prize is $400.
