A series of wellbeing workshops for the wine industry will be held across the country over the coming months.
The past year has been challenging for the New Zealand wine industry – with uncertainty caused by weather events, labour supply issues, and market uncertainty due to COVID-19.
To support Kiwi winemakers and grape growers, the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has allocated $40,000 to New Zealand Winegrowers to deliver 12 wellbeing workshops in winemaking regions.
“The workshops will give people the tools to help them tackle the year ahead with a positive frame of mind,” says MPI’s director of rural communities and farming support, Nick Story.
Nicky Grandorge, New Zealand Winegrowers’ leadership and communities manager, says they hope the workshops will boost morale and reignite enthusiasm.
“They will include discussions on the importance of mental wellbeing, as well as helping people to reset for 2021.”
