“We were very surprised to see it on our Facebook page, so we were a bit concerned, so when we got back to Australia we did a bit of research and discovered that this wine bar was donating its wine to WSSNSW, so it was a great surprise,” WSSNL Executive Director Michelle O’Brien said.
The WssNSW said the wine bar had donated five of its bottles to WTSN in the past, and this was the second donation to the group.
“It’s a great opportunity for WSSNW to get involved in a local wine industry.”
Our wine industry is very diverse and we really want to give a hand to local businesses and producers who have come through our program,” Ms O’Briensaid.

There is a huge need in Southbank and in the area, and we have been doing our best to help out,” Ms MacDonagh added.WFSNS is an alliance of wineries, winemakers and other wineries across Australia.
The wines will be sent to Southbridge, about 30 kilometres (19 miles) south of Adelaide, where they will be donated to WBSNSW.”
