The founders of Tim Adams Wines, in the Clare Valley, in southern Australia, have been awarded life memberships by Variety children's charity for their fundraising efforts.
The vineyard, founded by Tim Adams and Pam Goldsack, has been donating a portion of money raised by the sale of certain wines since 2001, as well as participating in and sponsoring events for the charity.
Variety helps provide children and families in need with financial support for medical supplies, treatments, and equipment like wheelchairs.
The husband and wife are two of only 13 people who have been awarded this honour in the organisation's 33-year history.
“There is no single moment of participation with any aspect of my involvement which hasn’t been both fulfilling and pleasurable at the same time,” Adams said. “Pam and I are deeply humbled and overjoyed.”
Adams was elected as a member of the Variety SA board in 2006, and introduced a vintage wine auction and luncheon, which still runs to this day.
The vineyard was established in 1987 and sells a variety of wines, including Riesling, Malbec, Shiraz and Tempranillo.
The company recently released two 'super whites' for the Christmas season in November, an oak-barrel-fermented Semillon 2013 (AUS$22) and Botrytis Riesling 2016 (AUS$25).
