New direction for Ballarat with wine bar proposal
Southern grapegrowers have labelled this year’s harvest a success, despite lower than expected yields. The season ran two weeks ahead of schedule, with many wineries finishing their harvest in late March. McLaren Vale Grape Wine and Tourism Association chair Peter Hayes said the season, which started flowering in September last year, had provided quality over quantity. He said there were no reports of any significant disease in crops, reports the Southern Times Messenger.
