Apart from the Upper Goulburn Winegrowers Association (UGWA), there is also a group promoting food, wine and culture, named Upper Goulburn Food, Wine and Culture Group. The group began working in 2000 driven by enthusiatic producers in Murrindindi and has expanded ever since now including people from Mansfield, Marrysville, Kinglake, Strath Creek and Merrijig among others.
