CHARITY - Flash Fundraiser - Save Tilbrook Estate
⚡⚡Flash Fundraiser ⚡⚡ Melbourne friends, please make me an offer I can't refuse for this beautiful DEED bag + sparkling rosė and sauvignon blanc from Tilbrook Estate winery in SA which was tragically decimated in Friday's catastrophic Adelaide Hills bushfire.
🙏⚡I will personally deliver the wine and bag to the highest bidder in Metro Melbourne before Xmas day.
⚡⚡BIDS START AT $100 AND CLOSE MIDDAY, MONDAY 23RD DECEMBER⚡⚡
🙏⚡100% of the winning bid will be donated to the GoFundMe page for Tilbrook Estate. ⚡⚡
🙏 My very dear friend Annabelle @ahillsdweller and her winemaker husband James @tilbrookestate lost 90% of their vineyard plus ALL bottled wine stock, equipment, sheds and machinery in less than an hour during the catastrophic fire storm which ravaged their tiny Adelaide Hills community on Friday 😢
🙏 Thanks to the bravery of many people their home was spared along with no loss of life. BUT they have lost their livelihood 😢 .
🙏 James is an extremely passionate and talented boutique winemaker in the traditional method (his wines have regularly received 5⭐ ratings from James Halliday over the years). All the vines destroyed in the fire were planted by hand 20 years ago by Annabelle and James. I'm lucky to have some of their exceptional wine in my cellar - including the limited release Belle Rosė (named after Annabelle).
🙏⚡Insurance will cover the vineyard rebuild, but the vines will not produce wine for a number of years. James and Annabelle are committed to rebuilding their winery, and a GoFundMe page has been set up for them - to help get through the next few months/years until they are back in business. .
🙏 Thanks and Merry Christmas, Emma xx
