Autumn 2018 Newsletter

Posted: March 02, 2018 Category: Newsletters

"Summer followed on from our very late spring and I am happy to say the vines responded with a catch up, grow fast and don’t be late for harvest attitude. We are right at the point of harvest and I have snapped off a photo of our Pinot Noir vineyard with its beautifully formed bunches of tasty plump black berries. I just know that this will be an exceptional year.."

The warmer than average summer has been fantastic for our young vines that I planted this spring. The frequent rains kept them in heightened activity, consequently the amount of growth has been exceptional. The Cabernet Sauvignon that I talked about in my summer newsletter (the Reynella clone and the Haughton clone) have reached the wire in their first year of growth and will be strong enough to carry a small crop next season. I’m excited!"

Summer 2017/18 Newsletter

Posted: December 01, 2017 Category: Newsletters

"Hello from the prettiest place in Victoria, perhaps Australia. We have just witnessed the latest start to spring in the 30 years I have been growing grapes in and around Bright. My vines generally burst their buds around the 21st of September with the earliest being the 16th and the latest being the 26th. This year it was the 8th October! People were still snow skiing in October! My guess is that this lateness will follow on right through the growing season until harvest. Just when we were getting used to early vintages (harvests) and global warming, the weather gods throw in a couple of cool yorkers to confuse everybody."
