Time and time again we’ve been shown that this is an industry that comes together for others, and for each other. It makes perfect sense then, that the team over at Young Gun of Wine have put up their hand to help us raise a few dollars for those in our industry that need it most - Highly skilled, incredible contributors to our industry that have been all-but-abandoned by the Australian Government.
The Annual WineSlinger Awards showcase the best of the best in local Australian wine bars and restaurants, with a shortlist voted by the industry, and a list of winners voted for by the patrons of the public. This year, the team at Young Gun of Wine will be donating $1 for every vote cast towards the Wineslinger Awards, up to $5000 - an absolutely incredible gesture.
To be able to donate for free, and support your local for free is a wonderful thing (though please do feel free to dig deep and spend some extra coin with either Tip Jar or the recipient venue of your vote - God knows they need it), and we’re so thankful to Young Gun of Wine for making it possible.
Cheers to an Awards shortlist that will be making a difference to hundreds of peoples’ lives, not just the winners.
