Follow the grapes for good trail in langhorne creek
When did you think you could be doing a little good with every glass you pour?
Kimbolton Wine’s director Nicole Clark always thought wine could be a force for good. Her family loves animals and are frequent visitors to Monarto Safari Park, one of the largest open range safari parks in the world and in our neighbouring Murray River Lakes and Coorong region. So in 2021 Nicole approached Zoos SA, a South Australian based non for profit conservation charity about joining forces..
In 2021, Kimbolton Wines released what is now known as ‘The Cheetah wine’, a 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon raising funds for vital cheetah conservation. Cheetah, like more than 70% of species at Monarto Safari Park, are threatened with extinction in the wild. For each bottle sold Kimbolton Wines donates part of the proceeds towards saving cheetah in their natural habitat.
Now, Zoos SA is proud to partner with five additional wineries from the Langhorne Creek region as part of the ‘Grapes for good’ initiative. Kimbolton Wines, Bleasdale, Bremerton, Lake Breeze, The Winehouse, and Vineyard Road wineries have come together to create a unique mix of wines to further support our conservation efforts with part proceeds from the sale of these wines supporting Zoos SA’s conservation mission.
‘Grapes for good’ is proof that wine can be a force for good. Every drop can go a little further and make a real difference.
If you care about animals and you love wine, there’s never been a more exciting time to make a trip into the Fleurieu Peninsula and visit the six winery partners based in Langhorne Creek to grab a bottle of the limited-edition ‘Grapes for good’ wines.
With more than 70% of the species at Monarto Safari Park threatened with extinction in the wild, in purchasing a limited-edition bottle from each visit to the cellar door you’re support keeps the fight to save these species from extinction alive.
