Homeless Grapes Project Pick | Coonawarra

April 14, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm ACST

Spend a morning amongst the vines picking grapes and help change the lives of those experiencing homelessness, Saturday 14th April, starting at Raidis Estate and working your way to Patrick of Coonawarra to finish at Hollick Estates.

Here’s the story.

In 2015, McLaren Vale vigneron Jock Harvey from Chalk Hill posted on Facebook saying he had three tonnes of beautiful Shiraz grapes that his team weren’t able to pick. He offered them to anyone who was willing to make a donation to Hutt St Centre, an awesome charity who work tirelessly to transform the lives of the homeless.

Vinomofo immediately wanted to help out. But instead of picking the grapes and making a small donation, they rallied the wine community together to pick the grapes, make a beautiful shiraz, sell it, and donate ALL the proceeds to Hutt St Centre.

With the help of a collection of great people, Vinomofo were able to donate $45,000 to Hutt Street. The donation provided 1500 meals, basic human services for 150 people, and jobs for 30 people. And Homeless Grapes was born.

This year Vinomofo is making the Homeless Grapes Project even bigger- engaging three wine regions, nine wineries, three incredible winemakers and an enthusiastic collection of pickers, wine-lovers and drinkers to help us along.

Be part of the Homeless Grapes Project story!  Spend a morning amongst the vines picking grapes. Your graciously donated time will ensure every cent from the wines sold go straight to those experiencing homelessness.

After the pick there will be a picking party for everyone to celebrate.
