We are an incorporated body that has been in operation since 2000 and was formerly known as the Upper Goulburn Food, Wine & Culture Group.
Why the name change?
We felt it was important to bring the group back home, promote the Marysville Longest Lunch, make sure it was not lost and that the “local” suppliers were able to showcase their products.
It is also in response to the Upper Goulburn Wine producers being broken into north and south regions, the south region being the border of Murrindindi and Mansfield shires near Merton Gap.
It was warmly welcomed at our AGM in 2013 and via our first round of strategic planning last year we felt it was the new direction for the group.
The new name has lost the “culture”; that too is a desire to become more focussed on the food and wine of our region, and as a response to the growth in cultural groups in the region, like the Triangle Arts Group and the Yea Arts Carnivale.
Our group is run by a volunteer committee who meet monthly and seek funding to run the projects suggested by our members, industry and local businesses.
Our AGMs are held each August - September in Murrindindi. A very casual affair usually with great food, wine and disscusion and if we are lucky enough a guest speaker. All are welcome!
We keep our members up to date with a regular e-newsletter, for special projects, events, opportunites and happenings we run adverts in the local papers and community radio, psot events on our social media channels and or issue direct invitations.
