If you love your food and wine, Benalla Rural City has the group for you.

Benalla Rural City in conjunction with key community stakeholders is fledging a new food and wine group which will meet on a regular basis.

The group’s first meeting will be held tomorrow from 11am to 12.30pm at the Civic Centre’s Lakeview Room.

The committee invites all food and wine producers, restaurants, chefs or anyone who has an interest in being involved in the long-term future of the organisation to attend.

The committee will be chaired by Cr Suzy Martin, and a few local wineries have already signed up to be involved including Richard and Alice Tallis of Tallis Wines, and Dennis and Gail O’Brien of LL Wagyu.

Tomorrow’s first meeting cover the following points:

Purpose of group and to gauge interest from producers;

Offer an event in May for High Country Harvest (Tourism North East);

Other activities of a collaborative nature, for example a food/wine trail; and,

Funding opportunities.

Those attending will have the opportunity to hear from Department of Primary Industries’ Kristy McMahon.
