fosters group - heritage collection cataloguing


An extensive cataloguing project was undertaken by ICS for the Foster's Group, in accordance with recommendations made by ICS during a previous scoping study. Initially, a pilot project was undertaken at two key sites, Seppelt Great Western winery and Abbotsford Brewery. Following the successful completion of the pilot study, cataloguing was undertaken at other sites, including Cascade Brewery, Penfolds Magill, Penfolds Barossa Valley, Wolf Blass, Saltrams, Annie's Lane and Lindemans Hunter Valley. In addition to recording essential collection information for each item, the cataloguing process also identified brands and brand history within the collection, as well as significant and iconic items within the collection.


  • Cataloguing of heritage collection
  • Photographic documentation and digitisation of collection material
  • Identification of brands and brand history
  • Identification of significant and iconic items within the collection
