Supporting Local Businesses
You may already be aware that, in January 2020, parts of the Snowy Valleys were hit by bushfires. Since then, the area has been in recovery and rebuilding mode. If you can’t make it here in person, you can support many of our local producers, makers and retailers online. Some of these businesses have been badly fire affected, and greatly appreciate your support of their online stores:
- Courabyra Wines
- Johansen Wines
- Obsession Wines
- Mount Tumbarumba Vineyard – On the Fly Wines
- Tumbarumba Wines Escape
- Tumut River Brewing Co
- Pretty Parrot Distilling
Or ask for these at your local bottle shop:
