We are recovering from bushfires

Bushfire impact

The bad news... here it is

– Bushfires have devastated the Tumbarumba wine region.  Our property has been severely impacted.
– Obsession winemaker (Adrian) has lost his home and surrounding services/structures.
– Our vineyards are destroyed and will require replanting (expect no harvest for 5 years).  No 2020 vintage.  We also have no 2019 vintage due to hailstorm damage in January 2019.
– Most of our vineyard equipment has been destroyed in the fires.

The good news... wine is safe

– The cellar was not impacted and we have recovered the wine from the property.  Our wine was not affected.  We aim to sell the wine to make an income in the short term.
– Our processing plant appears to be fine, but unlikely to operate for some time with all of our neighbouring Tumbarumba growers looking like they've lost their 2020 harvest to bushfire damage.  We can however, operate this facility in future years if local growers have a successful harvest in 2021.

We remain passionate about our industry and community.  Our region remains under threat from active and smouldering fires, but fingers crossed we will have some relief and recovery can start soon.  Thanks so much to businesses and individuals who have supported us while we get back on our feet!  We'll keep you posted.
