Alcott links with leading wine producer


Here's a good news wine story. 

Grant Burge Wines - part of the Accolade Wines group - has partnered with Australian of the Year Dylan Alcott AO to encourage all Australians to celebrate their ambitions, achieve their goals and leave their own mark on society.

Although now under different ownership, Grant Burge Wines has a Barossa history dating back to 1865. 

Under the Leave Your Mark brand - aimed at inspiring people to pursue their passions - Grant Burge Wines has linked up with Alcott, winner of four Paralympic gold medals and tennis grand slam winner. 

 In his new role as Grant Burge ambassador, Alcott shares his motivations, future aspirations and how he strives to leave his mark on society, focused on promoting equality across all abilities.

“I’m pumped to join the Grant Burge family and be part of Leave Your Mark, a campaign that shares my own desire to motivate people to be the best version of themselves and make a difference," Alcott says.

"It’s not about our past achievements or wins but what we are going to do next; being future-focused and striving to make a positive impact in what we do.”

As part of the brand alliance, Grant Burge is also an official partner of the Dylan Alcott Foundation - a charitable organisation with the purpose of helping young adults living with a disability to achieve their dreams and realise their full potential. 

To mark the partnership, Grant Burge will be donating $2 from select wine bottle sales later this year to establish tertiary education scholarships in conjunction with the foundation across the country, eliminating barriers to education and providing future work opportunities for all Australians.

“Importantly, at the heart of the Leave Your Mark campaign is the message that it’s not about our past achievements, but what we are going to do next," says Jack Glover, Marketing Director ANZ, Accolade Wines.
