Applications Close for GG’s Wine Giveaway

Applications have now closed for the Governor-General’s Penfolds Grange Hermitage giveaway, with organisations lucky enough to win a bottle of Penfolds Grange from the Governor General’s cellar to be notified by mail.

The initiative by the Governor-General Quentin Bryce to donate 100 signed bottles of premium wine from the Government House cellar to Not for Profit organisations has been hugely popular, with more than 350 Not for Profit organisations from across Australia applying.

The Official Secretary to the Governor-General, Stephen Brady, says the cellar has grown over many years to incorporate some very fine bottles of wine, collected since the 1980’s during the terms of previous governors-general.

He says Government House has had the cellar holdings assessed by a respected oenologist, who has suggested that some of the wines need to be consumed within the next few years, while others should be retained because of their longevity and historic value.

Brady says accordingly, they have selected 100 bottles of Penfolds Grange Hermitage, including every vintage between 1985 and 1990, and the 1992 vintage, for donation. The 1985 vintage is the oldest wine in the collection.

Successful Not for Profit organisations will use the donated wine for fundraising purposes, such auctioning or raffling off the wine.
