The LCGWC is peak body representing the regions and vineyards of the Limestone Coast. Namely Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Mt Benson, Robe, Mt Gambier and Other vineyards within the Zone.
We have active sub-committees involved in Limestone Coast water allocation planning, technical programs & Phylloxera exclusion, the Limestone Coast Wine Show, and recently formed USGEMC (Sub-committee seeking a moratorium on unconventional shale gas exploration & mining)
The Water sub-committee has been active for the last 6 years with the upper & lower Limestone coast Water Allocation plans & agreements.
The Technical sub-committee meet regularly and plan activities such as seminars & workshops, vine health and environment monitoring programmes, and undertakes and commissions major research projects. Presently it is working with the GWRDC to channel funds into important research and extension projects.
The Wine Show sub-committee run a regional wine show in late October every year. It is a self contained event relying on Sponsors and exhibitors to make it possible. The LCGWC support their activities.
The council is abreast of federal and state issues in concerns to grower, winemaker and legislative issues. It will form sub-committees as required to address issues as and when they become relevant to our members. Click here for a list of related &/or affiliate organisations we liaise with.
