Hunter wine growers release paper on CSG
Organic wine growers in the Hunter Valley say their industry is in peril if coal seam gas (CSG) exploration and drilling is allowed to go ahead. Rod Windrim is the vigneron at the Krinklewood biodynamic organic winery in Broke, which falls under the NSW government’s recently released Strategic Regional Land Use Policy. Mr Windrim said he moved to the area in 1989 for its “pristine and unspoilt” environment, reports AAP. But just talk of CSG in the region has seen customers walk away, he says.
