The impact of Covid-19 has hit many local Hunter businesses hard already, with a dramatic loss of events, visitors and customers across the region. Many of our favourite events such as the Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival (27–29 March) and the Lovedale Long Lunch (May 16+17) have been cancelled, with the flow on effect and uncertainty of the impact on local small business at the forefront of our minds.
If you'd like to support our much-loved Hunter vineyards from afar, you can plan a weekend out in advance, buy a voucher for a loved one, and simply keep in touch with them and let them know they aren't forgotten. It's so easy to support local nowadays – if you can't risk heading to the shops to grab your favourite bottle of wine, why not order from the comfort of your own home and have it delivered?
