Here at Cellarmasters, we are shocked by the catastrophic impact of the bushfires around Australia. Reports state that around a third of all vineyards have been scorched or destroyed. At this time the full devastation of the bushfires is still uncertain.
We're also aware that the Hunter Valley may not have a vintage in 2020 because of drought, bushfires and smoke haze. On a company level, we are working on various initiatives that will enable us to support both of these affected regions in the coming months.
Half a million dollars has been pledged by the Woolworths Group, including Cellarmasters, to support The Salvation Army Australia Disaster Appeal and those affected by the devastating bushfires and has pledged at least $250,000 to animal welfare and rescue organisations caring for wildlife impacted by bushfires across the country. Find out more of their efforts here. We are working out the best and most appropriate ways to use our resources to optimise our contribution.
As a small contribution, Cellarmasters will also donate ALL the profits from our Adelaide Hills Wine sale to the Adelaide Hills Wine Region Fire Appeal, which is the official account to support the recovery efforts in the coming months.
