Surplus block of grape vines becomes $36,000 donation for Adelaide homeless charity
A surplus block of grape vines in South Australia has been turned over to the community and used to raise thousands of dollars for a local homeless charity. The South Australian wine grower offered up the vines because it was not viable for him to pick them. More than 100 people turned out to pick the grapes on Sunday, while others volunteered to make and bottle the wine. Some of the wine has already been sold, raising more than $30,000 for Adelaide’s Hutt Street Centre for the homeless.
