In a very cool twist of fate - the judging panel representing the McLaren Vale Business Association couldn't decide between the fantastic efforts of Becky Hirst of Winey Kids in McLaren Vale, and Dee Reynolds of DeeVine Studio - so the two businesses were BOTH DECLARED AS WINNERS of the McLaren Vale 2014 New Business Award.
Such a wonderful outcome for two businesses who go above and beyond to promote the McLaren Vale Region to the local community and the rest of our wide brown land!
Becky and Dee are very much McLaren Vale Ambassadors, with their heart and soul firmly entrenched in their ambitions to create a family-friendly, welcoming community for locals and visitors. Both Becky and Dee have strong associations with the McLaren Vale Hospital and other local businesses, striving to create a united front when it comes to supporting and developing our wonderful community.
