Winemaker laments chemical plant plan for former landmark winery

An Upper Hunter winemaker says the possible transformation of the old Rosemount Estate winery in Denman into an ammonium storage facility would be “a sad day” for the wine industry. Chemical giant, Orica has lodged a development application stating its intention to store up to 2,000 tonnes of ammonium nitrate at the site. Upper Hunter Winemakers Association Treasurer Brett Keeping says there is a sense of nostalgia attached to the former landmark winery, reports ABC Newcastle.
