Our tenth birthday celebrations

Posted by Jenny Semmler on

Thank you for joining us to celebrate our tenth birthday! We became a business on 19th November 2005, and held our tenth birthday party at the winery own Saturday 21st November 2015. We were pleased to host over forty people for a free spit roast, followed by our retrospective tasting. Eric opened a wine from every batch we have made since we started making wine in 2004, except for two, which were missing in action. Most of the reds were holding up really well, including some of the very earliest Durifs that we made. The Petit Manseng also proved itself to be a variety that ages well. The 2009, the very first vintage we made, was vibrant and honeyed, showing characteristics similar to some of the best aged Riesling styles. 

Thank you to everyone who celebrated our birthday with us. Our customers are treasured and respected, and it was an honour to have you as our guests.

Finding a cure for cancer - the Berri Bike Boys "Ride for a Cause"

Posted by Jenny Semmler on

919 Wines supports the Berri Bike Boys as they "ride for a cause" in the community challenge of the Tour Down Under. We have been promoting their fundraising efforts and making a contribution for the last few years. 

Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, whether as a sufferer or they supportive friends and family. The Berri Bike Boys have been raising funds for the Cancer Council for the last few years, and have raised over a whopping $30,000 during that time.

We urge you to contribute to their fundraising efforts, by going to their donations page and pulling out your credit card. Be generous!

Here is the story of the Bike Boys - inspired after drinking a bottle of our 919 Durif I believe.

John Penna writes:

Once again the 919 Berri Bike Boys are showing that (Very) Old Men In Tights ( aka "Vomits") can do great deeds. For the 4th year we are up there raising money for the Cancer Council Riding for a Reason. Each year we have been one of the top fundraising teams. This year 10 of us are riding with some doing 142km and some 100km. Not bad for a bunch of social riders just out to have fun around the sunny Riverland only taking cycling up 5 years ago when most of us were in our mid 50s. We all have experiences with friends and relatives with cancer so the cause is close to our hearts. Give us a hand and donate to the team
