Mountain wine launched

ALMOST six years after their gimmicky 'Woeful Wine' flew off the shelves Murwillumbah Cellars has launched another local bottle of plonk.

The Murwillumbah wine label, available in “volcanic” red and white, has been designed as a tourist souvenir, bottle shop part-owner Geoff Clifford said.

“We felt it's such a beautiful place to live that we wanted to feature something local.

“A lot of people were asking if we had anything that is a souvenir of the area.

“And what better than the iconic Mt Warning? It's recognised all over the world.”

The Sauvignon Blancs and Cabernet Merlots are Hunter Valley clean skins, which feature a Murwillumbah label with photos of Mt Warning and rainforests.

“It's not a good climate for wine here on the Tweed and this is one way to meet demand,” Mr Clifford said.

The bottle has information on the back about the extinct volcano and the Tweed Valley.

“It's got a good response. People are buying it to send to their family,” Mr Clifford said.

“Two bottles have already gone to the UK.”
