Grapes for Good wins Best of Wine Tourism Award

In late 2021, six Langhorne Creek wineries sat down with the team from Zoos SA to discuss a 'Grapes for Good' trail, where each winery was to represent an animal from the nearby Monarto Safari Park on one of their wines, with funds raised donated back to Zoos SA's conservation cause.

We, along with Kimbolton, Bremerton, Gipsie Jack, Lake Breeze and Vineyard Road, form the 'Grapes for Good' trail through Langhorne Creek, where you can collect six different wines each featuring a unique animal on a bespoke wine sleeve. Bleasdale's animal is the Plains Zebra, and can be purchased on our ever-popularMulberry Tree Cabernet Sauvignon.

On Friday October 14th, the Grapes for Good initiative was awarded the 'Tourism Collaboration Excellence' award at the 2023 Best of Wine Tourism Awards. This was a brand new category for the awards, recognising the power of inter-region and cross-sectional collaboration that the Grapes for Good initiative represents.

The awards are part of South Australia’s membership in the prestigious Great Wine Capitals Global Network. Membership to the network acknowledges excellence in grape and wine production and highlights the world’s finest wine tourism regions.

To date, the Grapes for Good wine trail has donated over $30,000 to help endangered species at the Monarto Safari Park. The Grapes for Good wines are also sold through the Zoos SA retail stores at both the Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari Park, further promoting the trail and wines from the Langhorne Creek Wine Region.
