The Australian War Memorial has appointed Canberra District based winery Shaw Vineyard Estate as its wine partner.
Memorial Director Brendan Nelson said he was extremely pleased to have a local wine maker of the calibre of Shaw as the exclusive wine sponsor.
“The Australian War Memorial endeavours to ensure every visitor to this place walks away with an experience they will never forget. Excellence in the visitor experience extends beyond those who wander the galleries and reflect on the artefacts on display, to those who choose the Memorial as a place for their corporate function or event,” Dr Nelson said.
“Shaw Vineyard Estate has an excellent reputation for quality, which befits the status of what the Australian War Memorial represents.”
Shaw Vineyard Estate Owner/Winemaker Graeme Shaw commented, “To be offered a partnership with such an Honoured and Dignified institution as the Australian War Memorial is something that makes me and my family incredibly proud.”
“The Memorial is a manifestation of the Australian character and we believe our wines, that are full of Canberra character, will be an ideal fit.”
