Lure of grapes and bottle of wine attracts volunteer pickers to Riverina harvest

Lathered in sweat, grimy from the dirt and toiling under sweltering sun among grape vines, picking fruit for little reward does not conjure up romanticism. But for Tina Kirkup, spending hours in the heat with her fiance David Webster on the other side of a vine is very romantic. For their efforts, the couple will be treated to a meal at Magpies Nest Vineyard, near Wagga in southern New South Wales, and 12 months down the track, a bottle of wine too.
