about grampians winemakers
The Grampians Winemakers Inc (GWI) was established in 1992.
It has a strong focus on marketing the Grampians wine region, initiating major events such as Grampians Grape Escape – The Wine and Food Festival and Grampians Barrique Auction, and participating in other broad-scale regional marketing campaigns.
The GWI provides extensive support to the local industry, offering social networking events, workshops and seminars – such as the annual Western Victorian Wine Viticulture Seminar – to provide vital knowledge and up-skilling for grape-growers and winemakers.
Initiatives such as the Western Victorian Wine Challenge also encourage local winemakers to continually raise the bar for local product.
The GWI works closely with industry stakeholders and all tiers of government; and the GWI committee serves as a reference group for the Victorian Wine Industry Association.
