Pyrenees Shire Council wishes to congratulate Blue Pyrenees Estate on their recent success in obtaining a grant from the Wine Growth Fund.

$50,000 from the Victorian Government's fund is helping Blue Pyrenees Estate in the purchase of a Cross Flow Filtration unit for the winery. 

Blue Pyrenees Estate believes that this new equipment will help boost the quality, reputation and profitability of the region's already world-renowned wines. 

The equipment will be made available to smaller wineries in the region that are currently unable to access such technology and offers the prospect of new employment opportunities within the Pyrenees wine industry.

Minister for Regional Development, Agriculture and Resources Jaclyn Symes recently announced the successful applicants from round three of the grant program.

Council Mayor Robert Vance congratulated Blue Pyrenees on continuing to work on improving its wines through new technology.

"It's also great to hear that this equipment will be made available to smaller wineries," Cr Vance said.
