Plan snubs Upper Hunter wineries
Upper Hunter vineyards have been left out of the NSW Government’s recently released draft regional land use policy for the Upper Hunter.
“There’s been some sort of misrepresentation or some sort of a mistake by the NSW government,” Upper Hunter Winemakers Association president Laurie Nicholls told the Muswellbrook Chronicle. “They have the Lower Hunter vineyards in there – Broke, Bulga, Belford and the Pokolbin area. There’s no mention of the vineyards and wineries in the Muswellbrook and Upper Hunter shires.”
