Wine industry responds to Salvation Army’s alcohol review

The Salvation Army are calling for a review of alcohol advertising and promotion in the within the Barossa Valley; a call that requires a bit more research say some of Barossa wine industry leaders.

The Alcohol Awareness Campaign from the Salvation Army released new research showing around 70 per cent of over a thousand regional Australians surveyed believe the amount of alcohol advertising and promotion to under 25 year olds encourages them to drink more.

Barossa Grape & Wine Association (BGWA) Chief Executive, Mr James March, says the BGWA supports responsible consumption of alcohol as well as the industry wide actions including DrinkWise and the Winemakers’ Federation of Australia’s responsible winery initiatives.
