Drink wine; help struggling musicians

Montara Wines has launched a new range to help support musicians and entertainers facing tough times due to Covid-19 restrictions that have prohibited some live shows and limited their work opportunities.


The Billie & Co range consists of a cabernet merlot and a sparkling rosé. The Victorian winery will donate a percentage of proceeds from sales to Support Act, an Australian charity that delivers relief to music industry artists and workers.

Montara Wines has been owned by the Stapleton family since 2006 and managing director Billie Stapleton says music has been a family pillar since she can remember with several of the family having worked in the industry. 

“Our love of music and the arts has always been at the heart of Montara Wines," she said.

"With most of the Stapleton family being involved in the entertainment industry at some point of time, it was only fitting to give back to not only the musicians but all the crew and backstage workers. 

“That is what is so fantastic about Support Act. It helps not only musicians in crisis, but music workers too.”

Established in 1970, Montara is situated 200 kilometres west of Melbourne, in the Grampians region. See www.montarawines.com.au
