Sunday, September 12th, 2010 - RACV Travel Insurance
RACV has partnered with Australia’s largest online culinary travel guide, VisitVineyards.com, to offer its members a variety of discounts from food and wine producers across regional Victoria.

The RACV Regional Wine and Food Program extends the RACV Show Your Card and Save program to a network of vineyards and wineries, winery restaurants, food producers, microbreweries and related tourism experiences.

RACV’s two million members will have the opportunity to receive exclusive discounts to the state’s best culinary and winery experiences across six regions – Mornington Peninsula, Gippsland, Yarra Valley, Geelong, Grampians and North East Victoria.

Gordon Oakley, RACV’s General Manager Member and Motoring Services, said the RACV Regional Wine and Food Program was an exciting new initiative for RACV Members and for regional tourism.

“The program will also enhance the holiday experience for our members and guests staying at RACV resorts at Cape Schanck, Inverloch, Cobram, Torquay and at the Healesville Country Club.

“RACV is proud to be supporting Victorian businesses through this program and believes it will boost interest in regional produce and allow our members to indulge in their love of good food and wine at discounted prices,” he said.

VisitVineyards.com CEO and founder Robyn Lewis said RACV members will also be able to access added information and travel itineraries from the new RACV Regional Wine and Food Program website at racv.visitvineyards.com.

“As Australia’s leading online wine and food travel guide, with a listing of more than 30,000 wine, food and travel providers across every Australian region, the website has a wealth of knowledge about wine, food and travel experiences,” she said.

Chair of the Victorian Food and Wine Tourism Council, Tourism Victoria board member and co-owner of her own winery, Janelle Boynton, says there is no doubt the initiative will provide economic benefits to regional producers through increased cellar-door sales.

She says with great discounts of up to 20 per cent people will travel to take up the opportunities and spend more in the regions, helping to grow these businesses and the economy in regional areas.
