The Eastern states have been getting some severe weather over the weekend, with severe storms hitting South Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales over the last few days causing damage and flooding.

SA wine fellas are pretty bloody happy. Many were facing the prospect of dead vines this year. Many vines have been in for 100-80 years and never had the soil gone so dry, so deep. Saved by some of the best rains in living memory.

You wouldn't do it for quids would ya?
